"I am proud to report that I will soon enter the veterinary profession with much enthusiasm and drive to help the pets of the Loomis, CA community. I worked especially hard during my time spent on ophthalmology here, and have a strong interest in all topics related to the eyes! I look forward to keeping up to date by reading the journal and feel accomplished to have earned this award."
Sincerely, Conor Hoff

"I wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of those involved, including Dr. Margi Gilmour and Dr. Ken Abrams, for my recent ACVO student award and one year subscription to the journal of Veterinary Ophthalmology. It was a great honor to be recognized for my passion in ophthalmology while at Oklahoma State as a vet student, and I am excited for the challenges and opportunities ahead as I pursue a residency following my rotating internship at Ohio State University. This award means a great deal to me, and I look forward to hopefully adding to the list of accomplishments achieved by those associated with the ACVO. Thank you again".
