El Blanco Award

The School of Veterinary Medicine’s El Blanco Award recognizes significant contributions that animal owners and other benefactors have made to clinical veterinary medicine. The award is presented to an individual whose contributions have led directly to important advances in animal health and well-being. The School Awards Committee evaluates each nominee and submits a recommendation to the Dean. The award is presented in the form of two plaques - one presented to the recipient and the other will be on permanent display at the VMTH.
