What:

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to solve a mystery with a microscope? How about investigate deployment-related injury or disease in our highly trained Military Working Dogs? Or even help develop medical countermeasures to some of the most dangerous pathogens that pose a threat to service members deployed around the world? Join U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonels Tony Alves and Jennifer Chapman from the Joint Pathology Center - Veterinary Pathology Services, to learn what veterinary pathology is all about and highlight fascinating aspects of comparative pathology. Witness dynamic demonstrations of how Army veterinary pathologists identify deployment-related injury trends or potential infectious diseases that may pose risk to our Military Working Dogs, service members, and their families.
