"Supporting animal health is extremely important to me as it creates the opportunity to support many more aspects of the community." – Marley
Sandra recently completed her VWB/VSF VETS volunteer placement in Ghana, as part of our Young Volunteer Program. She is currently in her second year of the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Program at the Ontario Veterinary College.
"Supporting animal health is important to me because animals contribute so much to our world! As someone who has worked in a small animal clinic, (and has pets myself), I have already seen the amazing impacts that pets can have on the lives of their owners. In travelling to Ghana, I know that I will learn more about how livestock health is vital to the economy, and I will be part of a team that is providing support to humans through the health of their animals." – Sandra
