After serving as Program Coordinator for CHAIRE for three years, Brittany Fischer is wrapping up her time in this position to continue pursuing her PhD in the Department of Veterinary Preventive Medicine within the College of Veterinary Medicine and remaining engaged with our center as a CHAIRE Graduate Student. As the first Program Coordinator, Brittany has been a key figure in assisting with CHAIRE's development and progress to-date, facilitating many of CHAIRE's new programs and planning both of CHAIRE's very successful previous Annual Fundraisers.
