Dr. Teller awarded the 2019 Southwest Veterinary Symposium (SWVS) Visionary of the Year Award
From the Texas A&M University school of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences:
Dr. Lori Teller, a clinical associate professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM), has been awarded the 2019 Southwest Veterinary Symposium (SWVS) Visionary of the Year Award.
The annual award is presented to an individual who is recognized by the profession and actively engaged in a private, public, or corporate veterinary practice, as well as whose contributions elevate the standards and goals of veterinary medicine.
“I was very much humbled and honored to receive this award,” Teller said. “It means a lot to me because I have spent many years encouraging veterinarians and our associations to think progressively and to consider new ways to educate clients and improve business models.
“The award inspires me to keep pushing,” she said. “There are so many amazing people who’ve received this award and I feel awed to now be in their company.”
As the first full-time telehealth veterinarian in academia, Teller is pioneering a telemedicine program at the Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (VMTH) to improve patient care and provide remote practitioners with easy access to CVM specialists.
