"Blood and Guts Class" sounds way more exciting than continuing education (class) about anemia and icterus (blood) and pancreatic, renal and hepatic disease (guts).

Unless you are a NERD like me, and LOVE learning this stuff. And unless you already know you like Dr. Clemans because you met her at a doctor meeting, and you know she is nice. And unless your friend vet tech Erin is going to be there, so you know it will be a fun afternoon. THEN you will be the first one to show up at a continuing education class (like a NERD), even after staying up late the night before celebrating your new nephew's arrival into the world (and then watching Avengers into the wee hours of the morning because you are too excited to sleep). And you will have a very good day.

Last Sunday, Erin and I attended a continuing education event hosted by Nebraska Academy of Veterinary Medicine, sponsored by Kohll's pharmacy. The speaker was Dr. Jessica Clemans, an internal medicine specialist at VCA MidWest Vet. The information she presented was excellent.

This is neither here nor there, but I LOVE Dr. Clemans's hair.

 Dr. Clemans almost convinced me to start using IRIS kidney disease staging again. She did help me understand kidney disease and pancreatitis better.

 We met at Scott Conference Center in Aksarben. I always feel so spoiled when the venue goes out of their way to make the tables fancy. More importantly, lunch was barbecue, and it was amazing!

 These are my notes from the part of the talk about determining prognosis in kidney disease.

Thank you Dr. Clemans, MidWest Vet, Nebraska Academy of Veterinary Medicine and Kohll's Pharmacy! I had a great afternoon with you and Erin and the other veterinary team members of Omaha.
