The blog is back! As many of you may have noticed, our Zomedica blog has been dark since December 2019. Zomedica is a very lean and young organization; admittedly, we are coming out of a phase of “blog burnout”. We were struggling with our voice, what to say, how to say it, and whom on the team had the time to dedicate to writing thoughtful and meaningful content. Our communications team is proud to share that we have a summer writer-in-residence, future-DVM, Anna Blick.
Anna has joined Zomedica through the Veterinary Entrepreneurship Academy (VEA). Anna holds a B.S. in Zoology from Texas A&M University and is currently set to graduate the University’s College of Veterinary Medicine program in 2022. Anna is ambitious, personable, and already well-accomplished. She has seven publications in academic journals, including the Annals of Neurology, Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Journal of Animal Science, and Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine. She won first place for her presentations at the American College of Veterinary Pathologists and American Society for Veterinary Clinical Pathology 2019, the VMSRTP Program 2019, and the Texas A&M Veterinary Research Symposium. She has also been awarded multiple grants including the NIH T35 Training Grant, Texas A&M’s Graduate Student Training Grant, and Undergraduate Diversity Scholarship to attend and present at Evolution 2014. Now, she hopes to add: “creative writer and blogger” to her list of accomplishments. And, while our Marketing/Communications team is thrilled to have her help and have her lend her voice, Anna’s primary role and responsibility during her internship at Zomedica is to help our Product Development Team as we work to finalize verification and validation of our inaugural product, TRUFORMA™.
Without further ado, we hand the blog over to Anna’s capable hands. All summer blog posts will be written by Anna, from her point of view. With the exception of ensuring legal compliance with the SEC as a publicly traded company, her voice will not be edited or censored.
Please join us welcoming Anna as our summer writer-in-residence and stay tuned—this talented young veterinary student has energetic, insightful, and fresh commentary to share!
