First Fall Semester for the MVMA Student Chapter at VMRCVM
by Sarah Peloquin, Class of 2015

The MVMA Student Chapter at Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine has been busy during their first fall semester. The new-formed club has 43 members, including students from every class at VMRCVM. With help from the MVMA, the Student Chapter has been able to bring in several speakers to talk to the club; these have included Dr. Karyn Havras, who spoke to the club about applied epidemiology, and Dr. Gary Vroegindewey, who discussed the benefits of becoming an MVMA member. Along with this, the MVMA Student Chapter officers were able to meet up with MVMA officers Dr. Tom Armitage, Dr. Krista Evans, and Dr. Jan Ginsky on Mentor Day. Plans were discussed to further promote the MVMAs presence down at VMRCVM, and all parties involved helped to brainstorm potential collaboration events in the future.

The MVMA officers have also been discussing fundraisers to raise more money for the club, and will continue to recruit speakers to help educate members. If you or anyone you know has an interest in coming to speak with the club, please email Eve Waters at Overall, it has been a very successful semester for the first MVMA Student Chapter at VMRCVM!
