College of Veterinary Medicine Open House
Start Date: 3/29/2014Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Date: 3/29/2014End Time: 3:00 PM

Event Description:
Animals touch our daily lives from the food we eat, the products we consume, the health care advances we benefit from, and the services, entertainment, and companionship we enjoy. Wildlife species add to the beauty and wonder of our world. The connection between wildlife, domestic animals, the environment, and humans is called "One Health" and this concept is the foundation for veterinary medicine.
The 2014 Open House, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on March 29, will explore the One Health concept and our animal connections with more than 45 fun and educational tour stops, discussions, animal demonstrations, and exhibits.
The Smithsonian Institution's traveling exhibit “Animal Connections: Our Journey Together” will be available to tour during Open House 2014. Housed in a mini-museum inside an expandable 18-wheeler, the 1,000-square foot exhibit introduces visitors of all ages to the human-animal bond. Whether you’re an aspiring veterinarian, an animal lover, or a health care professional, you will find something to capture your interest in this exhibit.
