4-H Introduction to Veterinary Science Program

Thursday, February 1, 2024

491 Cottekill Rd, Stone Ridge, NY 12484

Teens ages 13 to 19 with an interest in animals and veterinary science careers should consider joining our 4-H Veterinary Science Program! 


Youth will explore the normal animal, including attitude and behavior, maintaining animal health, and the organs and systems of the animal body. Animal diseases will be discussed including viruses, bacteria, and parasites that affect animal health.
The program is a nine-week commitment, covering two units of study. The program is organized and sponsored by Dr. Beth Alden, Professor of Biology and director of the SUNY Ulster Vet Tech Program. It is coordinated by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County’s (CCEUC) 4-H Youth Development.


Area veterinarians and other speakers will provide hands-on lessons in a clinical setting. In the first unit, youth will explore the normal animal, including attitude and behavior, maintaining animal health, and the organs and systems of the animal body. In the second unit, animal diseases will be discussed including viruses, bacteria, and parasites that affect animal health. The instructors will also discuss the profession of veterinary science and possible career paths. The final class will include a guest speaker and a graduation ceremony.


Participation is limited to 24 students. Registrations will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis, conditional upon receipt of the 4-H enrollment form and full payment. Sorry, no refunds.


In the event of bad weather, lessons may be cancelled in which case an extended period will be offered the following Thursday. The series runs on Thursdays from 6:25 to 8 PM, starting on 2/1. 


A very special thank you to Dr. Beth Alden, Professor of Biology and coordinator of the SUNY Ulster Vet Tech Program, for her many years of service to the 4-H Veterinary Science Program!
