Aquatic Veterinary Medicine – Yes, There Are Doctors for Fish, September 27

Chelsea Hester, a doctoral student in the UT College of Veterinary Medicine, will present “Aquatic Veterinary Medicine – Yes, There Are Doctors for Fish” Friday, September 27.

Although there are fewer veterinarians specially trained in aquatic medicine than in terrestrial animal medicine, these professionals treat aquatic patients in general practice, zoos, aquariums, food animal, and laboratory settings. Come hear about a goldfish that needed a water wheelchair, the $1.8 million fish, and other odd aquatic patients.

The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, Sept. 27 from noon to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.

We have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. To request a pass, please email Amanda Womac.
