Roy Schultz Lectureship Series
The Roy Schultz Lectureship Series was established through a generous gift by Dr. Roy Schultz (ISU DVM '60, MS '81) and his wife, Jan (ISU BA '59). Roy, an internationally renowned swine practitioner, and Jan have requested that the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine provide high-quality educational opportunities for college faculty and Iowa practitioners to enhance swine practice and the delivery of quality veterinary services to the swine industry. This Lectureship series is designed to facilitate these efforts.
Roy is the embodiment of Iowa State University's Science with Practice motto. In the face of mounting losses associated with an emerging respiratory disease- Haemophilus pleuropneumonia (now APP), Roy took several years from his practice to characterize the disease, clinical and pathologic lesions, and to investigate control and mitigation strategies that would benefit his clients. In the process, he provided leading edge information on this disease for the research and practice communities.
