Community outreach is an important part of our mission in training. Our program visits local schools, camps, and festivals/events, to educate the public on aquatic animal facts, artifact identification, common conservation issues aquatic species are facing, and information about our program opportunities. We have something for all ages and it is our goal to make learning fun! We have a variety of hands-on and interactive activities. Some events that we participate in are UF CVM Open House, The Jacksonville Right Whale Festival, 4-H Camps, Career day at local schools, and so many more.
As part of both the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and UF Health, Veterinary Medicine is dedicated to advancing animal, human and environmental health through teaching, research, extension and patient care.
