Council of Senior Veterinarians -Dr. Tom Jeurgens speaking on service in MongoliaEducational Opportunities

Friday - 9:30 - 11:45 am
DR TOM JUERGENS, Iowa State, 1975
Tom was our speaker in 2001 sharing his experiences on a short term visit in Mongolia. Since that time, he has retired from his busy equine practice in the Anoka area. He has spent every summer for 14 years providing veterinary services for the herders and local vets in their "fast horse races". Even more important to the lives of the people are the workshops on basic livestock management and other educational teaching that improves the quality of life in this very poor country. This ministry started by Tom and Dr. Gerald Mitchim,and has now grown to about a dozen veterinarians from USA and are there long term and there are dozens who come to help short term each year. A much more comprehensive understanding of the ministry is their Web site
