Veterinary Summer Experience, CCI Convention, Ames History

Alejandro Ramirez and Jessica Juarez talked about a Food Animal Summer Experience designed to provide students of color with hands-on opportunities in Vet Science. Two undergraduate participants, J’Haira Rhodes and Daniela Gatica, spoke about how they became interested in Veterinary Medicine and what they have learned in the program.

The annual convention of Citizens for Community Improvement will take place on Saturday in Des Moines, and we heard from one of the speakers at that event. Kevin Simowitz, from Caring Across Generations, told about initiatives to build a better long-term health care system.

Alex Fejfar from the Ames Historical Society reminded us of the Ames High School Exhibit, which will be closing soon, and the new exhibit opening in August on Grain Elevators.
