Lisa Tedora Memorial Fund


In memory of Dr. Lisa Tedora (Class of '00), her family and friends have established the Lisa Marie Tedora Memorial Fund to help support the Lisa Marie Tedora Memorial Lecture Series in Critical Care/Emergency Medicine.

These annual lectures will be held each spring and will address cutting edge issues, diagnostics, and treatments related to critical care/emergency veterinary medicine. All lectures will be offered to VA-MD Vet Med students at no charge.

Dr. Tedora passed away April 22, 2006 at her home in Manassas, Virginia after a courageous battle against metastatic malignant melanoma. She was a graduate of Yale University where she received her B.S. in English and a 2000 graduate of the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine where she focused on equine and small animal medicine.

After graduation, Dr. Tedora practiced veterinary medicine at Animal Emergency Hospital and Referral Center in Leesburg, Virginia. She was a member of the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society and she founded the Creature Comforts Veterinary Care practice to provide acupuncture services to companion animals. She was also an avid horsewoman and was a member of the Virginia Dressage Association.
