As many of you already know, we have lost two more veterinary colleagues this past week. A fourth year student, Kelly Smith, from Michigan State University and a fourth year student, Whitney Engler, from UC Davis died this week.
Due to these losses and the others we have experienced over the past year, we are inviting all of the veterinary schools across the country to join together to share our support and condolences with those affected by these tragedies.
This Thursday, April 2, we hope that all of the schools can find a time to get together in whatever way they see fit to show our friends around the country that we are here to support one another. Whether it's a shared moment of silence, a candlelit vigil or any other form of support and reflection, we look forward to seeing everyone come together this Thursday, April 2nd.
Please work together with your school Deans to organize and ensure that everyone is aware and supportive of the plan.
To share the events and support, please consider using #vetstudentsunited to upload and event photographs or messages of support.
