Dr. Julie Levy, Maddie’s Professor of Shelter Medicine at the UF College of Veterinary Medicine, has been named a distinguished fellow of the National Academies of Practice.

Levy, an ’89 graduate of the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California-Davis, was recognized for her work with animal shelters, homeless animals, and the pursuit of One Health where free-roaming animals, humans, and the environment intersect. Her research and clinical interests center on the health and welfare of animals in shelters, feline infectious diseases, and humane alternatives for cat population control.

She joined UF’s veterinary college faculty in 1997 and is a founder of Operation Catnip, a trap-neuter-return program aimed at reducing the overpopulation of homeless and stray cats.

The National Academies of Practice is an interdisciplinary organization of health care practitioners and scholars. The mission of the National Academies of Practice is to promote excellence in practice of health care professionals, and quality health care for all through interprofessional collaboration in service delivery, research, education, and public policy advocacy.
