2016 graduate receives prestigious AAHA award

COLUMBUS, Ohio—The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is proud to announce that fourth-year student Aaron Lothrop has been selected by The Ohio State University as the 2016 recipient of the AAHA Award for Proficiency in Primary Care.

This award is presented in recognition of fourth-year AAHA student members who have shown outstanding clinical proficiency in primary care. The program is open to all fourth-year students who attend a veterinary college with an AAHA-accredited teaching hospital.

“AAHA is thrilled to work with the Association of American Veterinary Medical College’s Primary Care Veterinary Educators to recognize the achievements of veterinary students who excel in delivering primary care for their patients, and we are proud to honor Mr. Lothrop’s efforts with this award,” said AAHA Chief Executive Officer, Michael Cavanaugh, DVM, DABVP (C/F).

“Primary care is at the heart of every small animal practice. The AAHA Award for Proficiency in Primary Care recognizes those students who are doing a great job providing high quality care in the types of cases veterinarians see on any given day,” he said. “Without excellent primary care, it is impossible to have an excellent veterinary health care team for any pet.”

With the AAHA Award for Proficiency in Primary Care, Lothrop will receive five years of complimentary AAHA membership, including subscriptions to the online Journal of the American Animal Hospital Association (JAAHA) and Trends magazine, as well as five years of complimentary registration for AAHA’s Yearly Conference. For more information about the American Animal Hospital Association, visit aaha.org.
