An afterschool role-modeling program aimed at diversifying the veterinarian-scientist workforce is expanding with the help of four veterinary schools and colleges that received grants to partner with the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine.
This is How We “Role,” is a program designed to increase awareness of the vital role that veterinarians play in keeping people and their animals healthy.
The program focuses on elementary school students, a group that is particularly important to reach regarding the importance of veterinary medicine. It is supported by the Science Education Partnership Award program of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, a part of the National Institutes of Health.
