President Kent Fuchs visits college, veterinary hospitals

Dr. Kent Fuchs, president of the University of Florida, toured the UF Veterinary Hospitals on April 6 and spoke at a special faculty assembly during a two-hour visit.

It’s the first time President Fuchs has visited the college campus. When he first arrived in the afternoon, he was able to spend time walking the hallways of the small and large animal hospitals and getting a sense of the various services provided to animals, as well as how the college educates veterinary medical students.
