Dr. Rodney Page will present “One Health War on Cancer” as the Class of 1963 Distinguished Lecturer at Oklahoma State University Center for Veterinary Health Sciences’ Annual Fall Conference for Veterinarians and Veterinary Technicians. The two-day conference will be held on Oct. 13 and 14 in the Wes Watkins Center on the OSU Stillwater campus. Page will speak in the auditorium at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 13.

Page is the director of the Flint Animal Cancer Center and a professor of Medical Oncology at the Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. He was also recently conferred the Stephen J. Withrow Presidential Chair in Oncology. He has co-authored 120 manuscripts, 35 book chapters and one text book. Page is the Principal Investigator on the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study which looks at cancer in this particular breed in hopes of finding a cure for animals and humans.

In 2005, the Class of 1963 endowed the Distinguished Lectureship to cover the expense of a keynote speaker. Leaders in the veterinary profession are invited to speak at this annual conference where hundreds of veterinarians, many of whom are alumni, and veterinary technicians earn continuing education.
