Animal health trust vets are honoured with international awards
We are incredibly proud when our scientists and clinicians are recognised with awards to acknowledge their academic and veterinary achievements.
At the 16th International Veterinary Radiology Association meeting held in August, two of our vets were awarded such honours.
Dr Sue Dyson, our Head of Clinical Orthopaedics, was awarded the International Veterinary Radiology Association (IVRA) J Kevin Kealy Award. The award recognises members of the IVRA who have made substantial, scientific contributions to veterinary radiology.
Sue said: “I was hugely surprised to receive this award and feel extremely honoured."
Past president of the IVRA, Peter Lord, said: “It is hard to imagine that equine diagnostic imaging today would be the same without the contributions of Sue Dyson and her colleagues. Sue has lectured internationally and published more than 200 refereed papers in scientific journals, as well as being a major author and editor of four books. She is an outstanding recipient of the J Kevin Kealy Award.”
In addition, Ruth Dennis, our Head of Diagnostic Imaging, was awarded the European Association of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging (EAVDI) Douglas and Williamson Award.
The award recognises outstanding achievement within radiology. Ruth was President of the EAVDI between 2000 and 2002 and her long standing contributions to the association have been recognised with this award.
Ruth said: “I am very honoured to receive this award, especially since, as a vet student in Cambridge in the late 1970s, I was taught by Sidney Douglas and David Williamson, who were pioneers of veterinary radiology.”
Nuria Corzo-Menendez, current EAVDI President, said: “Ruth’s contributions to veterinary diagnostic imaging are vast and we will always be grateful for such great additions to our field.”
At the AHT we are lucky to have such a committed and passionate team of professionals dedicated to the fight against disease and injury in animals. Our congratulations go to Sue and Ruth on these public acknowledgements of their hard work and commitment.
