Four veterinary students at Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine recently traveled to Washington, D.C., to participate in the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Legislative Fly-In. Veterinary students and veterinarians from across the country participated in a two-day legislative workshop followed by a visit to Capitol Hill to meet with their respective elected officials.

“This is an opportunity for us to meet with our elected officials and advocate on behalf of the veterinary profession,” said Kyre Larrabee, class of 2020 and the National Student AVMA President. “Both AVMA and SAVMA members use their veterinary expertise to help shape public policy.”

Also representing Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine were Avery Melton, class of 2022, Ashley Ferguson, class of 2022, and Mayra Guzman, class of 2023.
