Dear dog lover:
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:
  • 240 attendees
  • 60 veterinarians
  • 25 veterinary students, attendance supported through OFA Veterinary Scholarship Program
  • 20 canine health researchers who spoke at the conference
  • AKC Parent Club members representing companion, conformation, and field events
  • Representatives from the AKC, the OFA, Purina, Zoetis, and VetVine
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.

Thank you for your continued commitment to the health of all dogs. We are grateful for your support!
