Adam Christman, DVM, MBA: Hey everyone. Great to see you all here for another dvm360 Pet Connections panel discussion proudly sponsored by Zoetis. In this dynamic conversation, we'll discuss the power of innovation and collaboration in veterinary medicine where Zoetis is leading the way towards a future of enhanced care and better outcomes for our furry companions. I'm your moderator, Dr. Adam Christman, Chief Veterinary Officer here for dvm360, and I'm thrilled to introduce today's panelists. Joining us over here is Dr. Cory Penn. Dr. Cory Penn received his DVM from the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine following his Bachelors of Science from Eastern Illinois University. Before joining Abaxis and Zoetis, Dr. Penn was a small animal veterinarian and medical director in central Illinois. He joined Abaxis Global Diagnostics in 2016 as a professional services veterinarian for the central and western United States and after the acquisition of Abaxis held the same role with Zoetis Diagnostics. Dr. Penn is currently the Senior Veterinary Diagnostic Platform Lead for VETSCAN IMAGYST with Zoetis Global Diagnostics. Dr. Penn currently resides in the Midwest with his wife Emily, three daughters—Harper, Reese, and Charlotte—Labrador Retriever Chloe and his cats Fluffy and Pinky. In his free time, Dr. Penn enjoys spending time with his family and being outdoors. Also with us is Dr. Lisa Hann. Dr. Lisa Hann decided to bring global adventure to her veterinary education by pursuing both undergraduate studies and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine Degree at St. George's University in Grenada and completing her clinical year at the University College Dublin. Dr. Hann also volunteered at a mixed animal practice in India and a zoo in Costa Rica during her schooling. After these travels, Dr. Hann pursued a rotating internship in New York City, during which she fell in love with internal medicine. She followed up her internship with a residency in small animal internal medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. During her residency, Dr. Hann was involved in hematology and transfusion medicine research. Prior to joining the consultation team with Zoetis, Dr. Hann worked for a decade at specialty and emergency referral hospitals with a very busy and varied caseload in both Seattle and New York City. Dr. Hann enjoys all aspects of the challenging and ever-complex world of internal medicine. However, she is especially interested in gastrointestinal diseases, endocrinopathies, immune-mediated processes, and hematologic disorders. Dr. Hann looks forward to partnering with veterinarians in case discussion and collaborating to develop intelligent and approachable diagnostic and treatment plans for patients and clients. Dr. Hann currently resides in Seattle with her husband, a kidney donor orange tabby cat named Penne Pasta—love it—and a rambunctious Chow Chow named Gimli. Also joining us as our wonderful friend and colleague, Dr. Carl Clary. Dr. Clary has been practicing veterinary medicine for over 25 years and is highly skilled at performing orthopedic surgical procedures. He is exceptional at performing knee CCL repairs, hemilaminectomy, and ventral slot surgeries, bone fracture repairs and more. His veterinary interests include orthopedic surgery, theriogenology, and internal medicine. When he's not practicing Dr. Clary enjoys being outdoors, racing, welding, and spending quality time with his wife Petra and their two children Gage and Portia. And also we have Dr. Shelli Wolfe that's here. Dr. Wolfe has been practicing in Lubbock, Texas since graduating from veterinary school at Texas A&M in 2005. Her veterinary interests include feline medicine, dentistry, internal medicine, and ultrasonography. Dr. Wolfe is very thorough in her practice of medicine and excels at working up complex cases. Outside veterinary medicine, she enjoys being a wife and mother to her husband, Matt and their two children, Reese and Logan. They are avid baseball fans and enjoy attending baseball games, especially the Texas Rangers. So I guess go Rangers, right?
