INVERTEBRATE MEDICINE, Second Edition BLOG

Who Is Dr. Bernard Vallat?

I thought it might be of interest to highlight one of the book's contributors periodically so readers can learn a little more about the chapter authors. I'll begin with Dr. Bernard Vallat who wrote the Foreword.

Dr. Vallat graduated from the National Veterinary School, Toulouse, France, in 1971. He also has a degree in developmental economics from the University of Paris (Paris West University Nanterre La Défense).

Dr. Vallat is now in his third elected term as the Director General for the World Organisation for Animal Health. He has served in this capacity since 2000. In 2008 he received the prestigious Philadelphia the Prix Penn Vet World Award at the University of Pennsylvania. This award is regarded as the profession's equivalent of the “Nobel Prize for Veterinary Medicine.”
