Dr. Lisa Farina, a clinical assistant professor in the college’s Department of Infectious Diseases and Pathology, was named “Mentor of the Year” by the Student Chapters of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists. Farina’s award was announced Dec. 6 during the the annual meeting of the ACVP, which was held in  Nashville, Tenn.

“This is a new award given by the ACVP, based on the vote of the members of the student chapter,” said Dr. Bill Castleman, professor of infectious diseases and a longtime ACVP member. “Dr. Farina is the charter recipient.”

Farina, a 1999 graduate of the UF College of Veterinary Medicine, also completed her residency in anatomic pathology at UF in 2003. Her interests include diagnostic pathology of spontaneous diseases of captive and free-ranging non-domestic species.
