Last month CHF was pleased to host the 2015 National Parent Club Canine Health Conference (NPCCHC), sponsored by Nestlé Purina
PetCare Company. This two day event featured:
25 veterinary students, attendance supported
through OFA Veterinary Scholarship Program
20 canine health researchers who spoke at the
AKC Parent Club members representing companion,
conformation, and field events

Many of the presentations made during the NPCCHC will be released and available to view as webinars later this fall. Please continue to check our website for more information.
At the NPCCHC we also welcomed Dr. Diane Brown, DVM, PhD, DACVP to the CHF staff. Dr. Brown serves as Chief Scientific Officer where she oversees the grants and educational programs. Dr. Brown looks forward to meeting and working with our many committed supporters.
