By Communications Team

Dr. Corrie Brown has been recognized for the second time in as many months.

This week, Dr. Brown was named this year’s AAVMC Billy E. Hooper Award for Distinguished Service recipient. Per the AAVMC, this award is presented each year to an individual “whose leadership and vision has made a significant contribution to veterinary academic medicine and the veterinary profession.”

Dr. Brown is a Josiah Meigs Distinguished Teaching and University Professor of Pathology, leading students and professionals at the CVM and around the world to new heights. An active member of the profession, Dr. Brown has worked with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the US Agency for International Development, Veterinarians Without Borders, and several federal departments to develop programs designed to teach veterinarians how to build sustainable health systems—improving health, food security, and economic stability.

Dr. Brown also developed an elective course in international veterinary medicine and assisted in the creation of the International Certificate Program. This program allows students interested in global affairs to develop a portfolio, preparing them for work abroad.
