Dr. E. Turner Lewis was born in Boston, Massachusetts, but like his brother Dr. Matt, he has spent time in New Hampshire his whole life. Dr. Lewis graduated from Kalamazoo College then went on to Michigan State University, where he received a DVM degree. Since graduation he has been continuously practicing veterinary medicine near Boston, with most of the years at his own practice.
Dr. Lewis is married with two children and four grandchildren. He has been very active in the Sled Dog area of our field and is currently an officer in the American Association of Sled Dog Veterinarians. He has been an attending veterinarian at the Iditerod Race approximately 17 times (as recently as 2012) and also working many of the other races countless times. Dr. Lewis is now retired from his own practice, but fills in with us when a veterinarian here is on vacation.
When not working here or out on the snow, Dr. Lewis is with his wonderful wife of 45 years, Kay, enjoying Bluegrass festivals, Kalamazoo College Board of Trustees activities, Rotary Club activities, watching sports or enjoying the outside world.
