BIMS Board Meeting Held
Posted April 29, 2015
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.
