BIMS Board Meeting Held

On April 24, the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences held the inaugural meeting of the BIMS board, which is a group of biomedical sciences alumni with an ongoing interest in the college.

One highlight of the event was a panel discussion about the college’s response to the Ebola crisis in Dallas last year. As you may recall, Nina Pham, a nurse at Dallas Presbyterian Hospital, contracted the Ebola virus while caring for a patient who had the disease. Her dog, Bentley, was then taken care of by our Veterinary Emergency Team (VET) during his quarantine. (Bentley tested negative for the virus.) The panel discussion included Pham; Dr. Eleanor M. Green, the Carl B. King Dean of Veterinary Medicine; and the two members of the VET who cared for Bentley, Drs. Wesley Bissett and Deb Zoran.

Afternoon presentations included The current state of BIMS, BIMS students’ needs, BIMS perspectives from both students’ and professors’ points of view, as well as updates on the One Health program, the Small Animal Hospital campaign, and the college’s centennial celebration. The event concluded with a wonderful performance by the Aggie Wranglers.
