This year more than 7,270 people participated in Pelotonia, an annual fundraiser for cancer research, and once again, Ohio State’s College of Veterinary Medicine took their part in committing to the cause.
This summer 27 students took part in the Veterinary Scholar Summer Research Program, led by the College of Veterinary Medicine and the Office of Research and Graduate Studies.
