A Diary Note from Professor Leo Jeffcott, Dean, University of Sydney, Faculty of Veterinary Science
Emeritus Professor William Ian Beveridge was an alumnus of the
University of Sydney, graduating in 1931. His celebrated working life was devoted to fighting disease. Whilst he began his career combating diseases in animals at the University of Cambridge, he quickly understood the importance of 'one medicine' and devoted much of his later career with the World Health Organisation understanding diseases that affect both human beings and animals. In 1972 Prof Beveridge published a book, Frontiers in Comparative Medicine, outlining his views in this area of science.
The Ian Beveridge Memorial Lectures, which reflect the Beveridge principle of One Medicine, were founded by a bequest from Ian Beveridge. We are delighted that the Ian Beveridge Memorial Lecture for 2009 will be presented by Dr Paul Morley, Professor of Epidemiology & Biosecurity, Colorado State University. Dr Morley, whose lecture is titled “Animal infections and risk for veterinary personnel… do we really act wisely?” has a keen interest in control of infectious diseases, including those infections acquired within veterinary teaching hospitals by both patients and the veterinary professionals working in these environments.
