This year’s Allen D. Leman Science in Practice award, given by the University of Minnesota’s College of Veterinary Medicine, will be presented to Bob Thompson, DVM with Pig Improvement Co.
Boehringer Ingelheim is proud to be the new sponsor of the Allen D. Leman Science in Practice award, an award given each year at the Allen D. Leman Swine Conference to a swine practitioner who has shown an exceptional ability to utilize science in day-to-day practice. The swine practitioner who receives the award bears the primary responsibility to move research into the field. Nominations and selection of the winner are governed by the Swine Faculty Planning Committee at the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine.
“Boehringer Ingelheim is pleased to join the University of Minnesota in congratulating Dr. Thompson, an outstanding swine practitioner whose work ensures pig health is a priority from start to finish,” says Lara Sheeley, director of marketing for the BI swine division. “BI is committed to supporting swine industry leaders in their pursuit of knowledge and science to drive innovative solutions.”
“For more than 20 years this award has honored some of the most accomplished veterinary leaders in the swine industry,” says Bob Morrison, DVM, MBA, Ph.D., professor in the University of Minnesota Department of Veterinary Population Medicine. “We are excited to partner with Boehringer Ingelheim this year in honoring Dr. Thompson.”
The Science in Practice award reception will take place during the Allen D. Leman Swine Conference, Sept. 16−19 at the St. Paul RiverCentre. Visit LemanSwine.umn.edu for more information and to register for the conference.
