When Dr. Matthew and Jennifer Joy lost their toy poodle, Josie, they looked to Ohio State and our distinguished cardiologists to do some research in Cardiorespiratory Medicine including right heart function, pulmonary hypertension and or cor pulmonale in dogs with heart and lung disease like their beloved Josie had. The first research project sponsored by the Joy’s and presented at ACVIM was on the Echocardiographic evaluation of the variability in estimating pulmonary artery pressure in dogs with degenerative atrioventricular valve disease. In addition they asked for a speaker to come in annually to talk about these related diseases.
This year we welcome Dr. Lynelle Johnson from UC Davis who has a research focus in cardiopulmonary physiology, diagnostics and disease. Please join our Cardiology faculty and residents as well as Dr. & Mrs. Joy as they honor their dog Josie during this lecture and learn more about Respiratory Endoscopy
