Charles N. Bell, VMD
Dr. Charles Bell was born in West Philadelphia in 1944. The family moved to Cheltenham, Pennsylvania and he graduated from Cheltenham High School in 1962. He returned to West Philly, graduating from the University of Pennsylvania with a major in Biology. He rowed on the lightweight crew for Penn for 3 years. During the summers he worked for drug companies doing research on birth defects and was supervised by veterinary pathologists. This led him to enter the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, getting his VMD in 1970. During veterinary school his interest turned to practice.
Dr. Bell met his wife, Barbara, while in high school and has been happily married for 47 years. They live in Cherry Hill. He has three children. Jeffrey and Jaclyn became veterinarians and he is lucky to have them at Evesham Veterinary Clinic. Marc is an architect in Coral Gables, Florida. There are 5 grandchildren. He enjoys sailing his 19 foot sailboat Little Egret, an O’Day Mariner. He has a 1970 Cutlass Supreme convertible, and has driven it in the Miss America Pageant boardwalk parade every year since 1977. Charles and Barbara have always had Siamese cats and their dogs have included Norwegian Elkhounds, a Siberian Husky, and a Bedlington Terrier.
Dr. Bell did a brief stint with equine practice in Pomona, NJ when graduating. He then worked with Dr. Stearn and Dr. Allen in Haddon Heights, NJ for five years. He bought a small house for an office on Route 73 in 1975 before building the current building in 1980, adding an addition in 1989. He enjoys attending continuing education, most recently dentistry and ultrasound. He especially likes attending world veterinary congresses, where he meets veterinarians from different countries. These have included those in Jerusalem, Prague, Italy and Copenhagen.
Because of his interest in amateur radio (acquiring a license in high school) Dr. Bell became involved in emergency management. He founded the Camden County Animal Response Team (CART) and is still director. The CART responded to Hurricane Irene and Superstorm Sandy, setting up shelters which enabled evacuated people to be near their pets. He is a member of NAHERC (National Animal Health Emergency Response Corps of the USDA) and is available to deploy to disease outbreaks such as foot and mouth disease and avian influenza. He also attended a course given by Iowa State University and became a Bioterrorism/Agroterrorism trainer. He is a past president of the Southern New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association.
