Events

At a workshop on veterinary medicine, Donna Bouley, DVM, PhD (left), a professor of comparative medicine, uses a model to teach rat anatomy to students at Alta Vista High School, a continuation school in Mountain View. In the December workshop, students examined animal furs, antlers, teeth, placentas and hearts in hands-on exercises. They learned how to do suturing and how to wrap the broken leg of a horse. Bouley led the session, along with veterinarians Megan Albertelli, DVM, PhD; Gabriella Suarez Mier, DVM; and Stacey Kang, DVM.
