Dear Soon-to-Be Doctors:

Congratulations on earning your Illinois veterinary degree, especially given the situation these past two months!

Everyone needs some good news these days, so if you’d like a press release announcing your good news sent to your hometown paper or undergraduate alumni publication, please use the form below to help me generate a personalized press release.

Please note that you must include the name of at least one publication to which you’d like the release sent. (Please realize that the larger papers, such as the Chicago Tribune, are unlikely to print this type of news, even if we send it to one of the community editions.)

If you have any questions, please email me at
