Congressman Ted Yoho will be visiting the UF College of Veterinary Medicine, his alma mater, on Jan. 28 to address students on the topic of veterinary policy. The event will begin with refreshments at 5:30 p.m. in the college’s new auditorium, with the actual presentation scheduled for 6 p.m.

The UF Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association, or SCAVMA, is hosting the event, titled “Veterinarians Take Washington.” All UF veterinary medical students, faculty and staff at the college who are interested are invited and welcome to attend.

“The Congressman will discuss what it means to be a veterinarian in Congress and how we can all get involved,” said Denae Campanale, SCAVMA’s president.

Yoho, a Republican who graduated from the UFCVM in 1983, represents North Central Florida’s 3rd Congressional District, which includes Alachua, Union, Gilchrist, Bradford, Marion, Clay, Suwannee, Dixie, Lafayette, Columbia, Levy, Madison and Hamilton Counties. He was elected to the 113th Congress in November 2012 and is serving his second term in the U.S. House of Representatives.
