At this time, the AAVN is also pleased to announce the following award:
Richard R. Weiss Memorial Student Research Award Amount: $500 (student), $2000 (mentor)
Criteria: All oral and poster abstracts submitted to the AAVN Clinical Nutrition & Research Symposium by primary authors in training programs will be considered for this award. Research projects with a focus on companion animal product testing are preferred. Priority will be given to 1st- 4th year veterinary student submissions, although graduate student and resident submissions are also eligible. A professor affiliated with an academic institution must be identified as mentor to the project and agree to all terms and conditions for use of the mentor portion of the award, which should be used to promote future student research projects.
The abstract review committee will decide the recipient for the Richard R. Weiss Memorial Award. The award will be announced in advance of the Symposium so that the recipient may opt to use the student portion of the funding to cover the cost of travel and/or accommodations to the Symposium.
The Richard R Weiss Memorial Student Research Award was established by Laurie Martin, DVM in honor of her brother who pursued truth and honesty in all things. Their last conversation together was about inaccurate pet food product labeling claims.
