Veterinarians Without Borders (VWB)

Special Interest, Academic - Vet-Med

Description

Veterinarians Without Borders is a club for anyone who is passionate about animal care or medicine. We conduct service trips in under-served communities worldwide to help improve the quality of life for both the animals and the people that inhabit them. Beyond that, we try to look at the bigger picture of animal and human health worldwide. We aim to focus on a variety of aspects of animal care that might be overlooked elsewhere.
