MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN
Dean HERB WHITELEY, COLLEGE OF VETERINARY MEDICINE
The work of the College makes a difference in countless lives. In April and May we are asking our faculty and staff members to support that work by making a gift to a College program.
Some may choose to support a scholarship that relieves the financial burdens of a veterinary student. Others may donate to the Wildlife Medical Clinic, the CARE Pet Loss Helpline, a hospital fund to assist with the expenses of patient care, or a departmental fund that promotes graduate education or research.
There are dozens of funds to choose from, and each one, ultimately, has an impact on the life of a person or animal. A complete list of funds is here: vetmed.illinois.edu/advancement/urhere/funds.html.
Last year during the first annual "You Are Here" faculty-staff campaign, conducted as part of the university-wide "Brilliant Futures" fund-raising initiative, many within our College community chose to make a contribution. For our alumni and friends across the country, this campaign provides an opportunity to show your support and gratitude for the outstanding work done by our faculty and staff.
On behalf of the College, thank you to everyone who contributes by working at and giving to the College. If you would like more information, please contact me at email@example.com.--Herb
SPOTLIGHT ON THE TEACHING HOSPITAL
Meet Dr. Jodi Matheson
Dr. Jodi Matheson arrived at the hospital’s diagnostic imaging section this spring from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she had completed her residency and then continued on as a clinical outreach instructor.
Her current clinical and research interests include zoo and exotic species imaging, contrast ultrasound imaging, and functional MRI of olfaction in the canine.
Now that the teaching hospital offers outpatient imaging for ultrasound, MRI, and CT, Dr. Matheson is available to answer questions about choosing the best type of imaging study based on clinical signs and current findings. She can be reached through the imaging coordinator at 217-244-2031.
Dr. Matheson is excited about teaching Illinois students and providing continuing education for practicing veterinarians. “With the availability of current and future imaging technology,” she says “the possibilities are endless.”
