CALS Student Perspectives | Rachel Turner: Future vet conducts colic research & travels ... | Research from the NC Agricultural Research Service |

Six CALS students -- Beneficiaries of the land-grant university education -- make their mark in academics, arts, research and more.


Future vet, Rachel Turner, conducts colic research & travels afar for animal care internships. "For as long as she can remember," she "has wanted to be a veterinarian." Along the way, she has been an international animal health intern in Sri Lanka, where she worked with elephants; and she has conducted resarch on equine colic -- a serious, sometimes fatal, digestive disorder of horses -- with Dr. Matthew Gerard,  who presented the findings at an international symosium last fall.
