Four Scholarship Recipients for 2018

 

The American Association of Fish Veterinarians announces the 4 recipients of their 2018 AAFV scholarships.  As in previous years, all applicants were well qualified which made the task for the scholarship committee difficult.  AAFV is very appreciative of the scholarship money they received from the University of Florida Wildlife and Aquatic Veterinary Disease Laboratory, Dr. Tim Kniffen, Merck & Company, Inc., Dr Allyson McNaughton and Dr. Rick Harmon.  Their contributions help further aquatic veterinary medicine.
