Project - Veterinary Science/Medicine
Project Leader: Charné Moore
Junior Leader: Bishop Evans and Destiny Rouse
Project Description: Exploring innovations in Veterinary Medicine and technology.
"The veterinary science project is a unique learning experience. Learning things in this project is adaptable to the kind of person you are. You get hands-on experience with the dissections, learning technology, and the field trips to the animal hospitals. From these experiences, you learn about the functions of physical structures in different animals, the complications veterinarians face, and how animals are treated with the help of science. You also learn leadership and team skills when performing group projects. Overall, it is an incredibly fun and informational project that will definitely intrigue you." - (Lily, current VSM 4H OABB project member)

•4th Thursday of the month meetings
1) December: There will be no project meeting
2) November meeting: Friday, November 10th on Veterans' Day observed from 10-2pm, (so there's no meeting on the 4th Thursday for this month only).
*Plus: 1 to 2 optional field trips or day camps. Veterinary Medicine project members must pay additional expenses to participate in these activities. The estimate price range is $30-$75 for these non-mandatory trips and can activate flexible schedule dates in January & February. These additional field trips are non-mandatory for the project. In years previous we have gone to veterinary medical schools, equine rescue centers, & collaborated with other projects that deal with animal health.
