Dear Faculty, Staff, Students and Friends,

The success of any organization, be it a sports team, or any other group, is a function of the people that make up that group. I’d like to take this opportunity to note some of the key honors, appointments and awards that our own people – the foundation of this college and its success — have achieved in recent months. If you know these individuals, please congratulate them when you see them! We can’t thank them enough for all they do for the college and for UF.

  • Dr. Brian DiGangi, a clinical assistant professor with the Maddie’s Shelter Medicine program recently became one of the first veterinarians in the nation to become certified by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners in the new specialty of Shelter Medicine Practice.
  • Dr. Roy Curtiss, a professor in the department of infectious diseases and pathology whose interests include biotechnology, genetics, microbiology, immunology and vaccinology, has been named to the National Academy of Inventors.
  • Dr. Shannon Roff, the college’s first candidate to pursue her Ph.D. concurrently with her anatomical pathology residency, received the C.L. Davis Student Scholarship Award for her scholastic achievement in the area of veterinary pathology. Dr. Roff completed her Ph.D. and residency in December and is now working for Charles River Laboratories in Frederick, Maryland as a veterinary pathologist.
  • Dr. Julie Levy, a professor of shelter medicine in the department of small animal clinical sciences who works with UF’s Maddie’s Shelter Medicine Program, received the NC State University College of Veterinary Medicine’s Distinguished Alumni Award. Dr. Levy received her Ph.D. from NC State and is a national leader in shelter medicine.
    All of you work hard every day to make our college great. I appreciate the role every one of you plays and it’s a privilege to work among such talented and energized individuals.
