There were 300 posters and three categories of poster presentation at the conference: Pathology, Infectious Diseases and Physiology & Pharmacology. Her poster was one of six that won in the Infectious Diseases category.

congratulations Vanessa! We are very proud of you. Your work makes a difference in the lives of animals. The future for companion animals and wildlife grows brighter with students like you searching for answers to their life and health issues. You also reach other students and motivate them to follow their dreams. Thank you and keep going!
