At the next QDVA dinner meeting of the 2019 fall/winter CE session, Dr. Tamara Brown DVM, BSc., will review nutritional management of common senior diseases including chronic kidney disease, osteoarthritis, cognitive dysfunction, hyperthyroidism, etc.
Dr. Tamara Brown graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2014, after which she returned to her home town of Montreal to work as a companion animal veterinarian. In 2016, Dr. Brown was offered a teaching position at Vanier College in Animal Health Technology. She taught a variety of courses including Laboratory Animals, Pathology, Research Methods, and Nursing and Radiology. Vanier College provided Dr. Brown the opportunity to be a member of the Universal Design for Learning task force, focusing on accessibility and providing educational tools to the entire college community. Dr. Brown quickly developed a love for all things pedagogy and as such she took up a part-time position as a Pedagogical Counsellor at the college while still teaching in Animal Health. In her dual roles, she created two courses for the college, helped organize college wide pedagogical events, and helped the Animal Health department recreate their entire curriculum.
In the summer of 2018, Dr. Brown took the position of Professional Consulting Veterinarian with Hill’s Pet Nutrition Canada, bringing her passion for education to the company. Dr. Brown is still based in Montreal but travels all over Eastern Canada in her role with Hill’s.
