“Identifying and Managing Ophthalmic Emergencies”

Dr. Katie Freeman

Dr. Katie Freeman received her bachelor’s degree from Brown University with a concentration in environmental health and a master’s degree in environmental management from Duke University focusing on marine conservation and ecology. She then entered a veterinary medicine program at North Carolina State University where she received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM). She then completed a rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at Colorado State University and completed her residency in comparative ophthalmology at UC Davis.

After working in private practice in CA, Dr. Freeman accepted an assistant professor position and she has been a faculty member at Colorado State University for the past 4 years. She is now returning to the Bay Area with her two dogs (Kigali and River, shown at left), cat, husband and young son. She enjoys spending time outdoors and loves hiking, running, and roller derby.

Dr. Freeman is frequently involved in wildlife pro-bono veterinary care and her special interests within ophthalmology include ophthalmic surgery, optics, tear film dynamics and surface ocular disease, as well as wildlife and exotic animal ophthalmology.

Sponsorships for Future Meetings

Sponsor the Next SFVMA Meeting

In order to continue to contract with the Cliff House as our meeting venue, support our charitable and scholarship funds, and generally maintain the organization (with keeping dues payments reasonable), the Board will continue to seek sponsorships that help to cover the costs of our programs. While we hope to avoid overt endorsement of specific products/services, etc. during the continuing education presentations, we feel it is reasonable to allow the sponsor to distribute marketing materials and to make a brief presentation with regard to promoting their interests in recognition of their generous support.

While we would encourage members-at-large to make announcements regarding new endeavors that would be of interest to the membership, we would kindly ask that promotional materials be limited to those provided by the sponsor organization. Thanks for your understanding!

If you are interested in sponsoring a future meeting, please contact Philip Watt: sfvmapresident@gmail.com
