KQED Forum live at the Vet School

This morning I’m blogging live from the broadcast of KQED’s Forum talk show, live from a lecture theater at the School of Veterinary Medicine. We have an audience of about fifty people here, and in the first hour we have been hearing about the need for more veterinarians, and the changing role of vets in society. A lot of questions have been focussing on food safety and animal welfare issues. Also, we’ve heard about UC Davis’s programs to get veterinary students out on the farm, and that bilingual skills are going to be useful if you work on a dairy farm.

In the next hour we’re going to be hearing more about research in human and animal health.
