Dr. Natalie Isaza, who recently was named to a new endowed professorship at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, was honored Oct. 22 at the second annual Celebrating Distinction ceremony, held at the McKnight Brain Institute on the UF Health campus.

Earlier this year, Isaza became the Grevior Shelter Medicine Community Outreach Professor. Her position was created thanks to the generosity of longtime college and shelter medicine supporters, Arnold and Barbara Grevior of Fort Lauderdale and St. Augustine. The ceremony is held every two years to honor faculty members from UF Health who occupy new or recently filled endowed professorships, as well as the donors who made the positions possible.

Appointment to a professorship or chair is one of the highest honors a college can bestow on a faculty member and is reserved for scholars of national and international acclaim.

The event lasted about an hour and was followed by a reception.
