Mentor Program

The WVLDI-SC hopes to start a mentor program for not only students to have women mentors within the veterinary field, but also a mentor program with local schools to provide children with another avenue of mentorship. Children can learn about science, medicine, and veterinary medicine through the program, but can also learn about leadership, confidence, and compassion at a young age.
