Dr. Nong Inpanbutr of the Department of Veterinary Biosciences has received grant from the Battelle Endowment for Technology and Human Affairs (BETHA).
She was awarded $14,250 to support her project to develop an audiovisual program revealing how culture, society and religion influence the practice of veterinary medicine in other countries such as Thailand. This educational program also includes anatomy, habitat, health, and behavior of Asian elephants. The program will increase cultural sensitivity and enhance awareness of cultural diversity for students as well as elevate the quality of education on Asian Elephants.
BETHA grants provide funding to support university activities designed to continue the examination and understanding of the impact of science and technology on individuals and society. Previous Battelle Endowment projects have included conferences, exhibits, workshops, videos, and interactive computer projects that address the interactions between science and technology, and the needs and aspirations of persons and societies in our increasingly technological world.
She was honored at a reception in Bricker Hall on April 15th.
