Dr. Bell’s Knowledge of Poultry Benefiting Many
Dr. Cindy Bell does double duty. Here at the Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, she is a Diagnostic Pathologist. She is also a Co-Director and Principal Pathologist at the Center for Comparative Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology and a Clinical Instructor at the UW- School of Veterinary Medicine. Small-flock poultry pathology is one of her many interests.
As the popularity of urban backyard flocks has risen, so has the demand for veterinarians who know about poultry. Dr. Bell says, “While I’m not exactly a poultry expert, I do have a passion for educating veterinarians about poultry diseases.” She has worked with the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) and the Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Association (WVMA) to keep practicing veterinarians fresh on the topic of poultry. An upcoming small flock workshop will be hosted by DATCP in Madison on March 25th.
This past fall, Dr. Bell developed an elective poultry course at UW-Madison SVM that addressed small flock health.
