As a second year veterinary student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, I have had the privelege of learning from an innovative curriculum that interweaves integrated didactic coursework with hands-on clinical experiences. I spent the past summer researching novel methods of therapeutic transport to neuronal cells specifically via the Clostridium botulinum neurotoxin's binding and translocation domains and developing modified Kirby-Bauer assays to show their effectiveness with a prototype cargo. I am greatly looking forward to the opportunity to work with RAVS this summer to grow as a student clinician, hone in on the clinical skills I can improve upon, work hard for a great cause, and connect with clients and patients that so dearly need a helping hand. The bond between a human and an animal is visceral and enigmatic; one that strengthens over time as is unique to each animal that touches your life. With programs like RAVS, this bond can be reinforced and prolonged through veterinary care that otherwise would be unattainable to underserved areas. The clients that are helped through this program now can watch their best friend live a happier, healthier life. What a wonderful gift. With your help, RAVS can continue to provide care for years to come and give more animals the healthy future they deserve.
