Honored Mentor

Richard P. Hackett


Dr Hackett was highly influential in guiding me to equine surgery and to CSU! He also has strong Ohio routes in the Standardbred industry and I would see him back in Ohio since I am faculty at OSU which is a treat. Now I know where he got the jodpur and slim pants look from!

I'm honored to have been able to play a role in the training of so many talented students and house officers during my 42 years at Cornell. These wonderful people are a legacy that I will always treasure.
