As part of its educational outreach efforts, the AVMA has created a two-sided poster illustrating how veterinarians help protect animals, people, and the environment. Teachers in grades 4 through 7 can use it to complement a variety of classroom science lessons. Parents, counselors, and veterinarians will find it helpful in explaining how the work of veterinarians contributes to animal and human health.

The poster can be downloaded from the Careers area of the AVMA Web site, www.avma.org, or a printed, 11-by-17 version can be requested by contacting Joanne in the AVMA Communications Division at jclevenger@avma.org.
