College of Veterinary Medicine Open House

When:  Saturday, March 29
Time:  9 am to 3 pm
Where:  College of Veterinary Medicine -
4700 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh

We share more with animals than we may know.

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 NC State College of Veterinary Medicine Open House, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 29, will explore the One Health concept with exhibits and discussions on the connection between animals, the environment, and people. The event also will offer the traditional opportunities to get up close with “creatures great and small,” canine demonstrations and displays, and chances to talk with faculty and DVM students. More than 40 fun and informative tour stops explain advances in veterinary medicine, veterinary medical technology, best care practices for the family pet, and what it takes to become a veterinarian.

Special attraction: The Smithsonian Institution's traveling exhibit, "Animal Connections—Our Journey Together”, a 1,000-square-foot science museum will be available to tour.

Location: 4700 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh
