Vesalius Trust Research Grant

Vesalius Trust

I am honored to receive a research grant from the Vesalius Trust for my master's project research! I proposed this project last year, after planning and consulting with my content advisor, Dr. Erin Beasley at the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. This in-progress project will be an iBook on Equine Lower Respiratory Disease Diagnostics, for use by 3rd year students. My research will study the effectiveness of integrating multiple visual and textual teaching materials into a single, portable iBook platform to teach anatomical concepts of respiratory disease pathology and the psychomotor skills necessary for comprehensive evaluation and diagnostics. The Vesalius Trust provides educational funding for visual communication in the health sciences and awards scholarships based on scholastic achievement and project merit. I am honored to have been recognized, and look forward to my project's completion and results!
