"Earning the Certificate for Diversity and Inclusion in Veterinary Medicine from the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine helped enhance my role as a communicator by giving me tools to effectively understand the complex issues surrounding diversity and inclusion. I have been able to apply lessons learned to multiple stakeholders, including faculty, staff, students, and clients."
