Welcome Emily Halsmer, one of three summer research vet students with Schubot!

Emily is spending the summer at TAMU funded by the Vet Med Summer Research Training Program, and is a DVM student at Lincoln Memorial University. She will work with Dr. Erin Scott on a clinical study of ophthalmic parameters of the Quaker parrot (Myiopsitta monachus). Emily states ”We are excited to report the first ophthalmic normals for the Quaker parrot species using the large colony at the Schubot Center for Avian Health.” Here is a photo from her first day of work with the birds in the Hospital room at the aviary.
