Helping Animals and People Through Evidence-Based Community Engagement and Veterinary Medicine

Brittany Watson, Director, Shelter Animal Medicine, School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Pennsylvania

Tuesday, November 3, 2015
6-7 p.m.
World Cafe Live
Walnut Street

How do we encourage the public’s enthusiasm for science? How do we encourage empathy towards people and animals? How do we do this in an evidence-based way? In this Café talk, Watson will describe how an educational program she implemented affected the knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors of high school students. She’ll also discuss Penn Vet’s mutually beneficial collaborations with area schools and shelters.

Expert faculty from the University of Pennsylvania shed light on their research at the Penn Science Café. It’s an evening of engaging, stimulating conversation, with a Q&A session following each talk.

Presented by Penn Arts and Sciences in partnership with the Office of University Communications, Penn Café events are free and open to the public, but RSVPs are encouraged. For more information or directions, contact Gina Bryan at 215-898-8721 or email at bryangm@upenn.edu.

Menu items are available for purchase. Happy Hour pricing from 4–6 p.m.
