Dr. Robert “Kit” Flowers, a 2002 graduate of the Master of Nonprofit Leadership program, received the 2017 President’s Award from the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).
Given to Flowers and the Christian Veterinary Mission (CVM), which he leads, the award recognizes individuals or groups making extraordinary contributions to health, veterinary organizations or the profession. CVM provides relief, training and veterinary services to underprivileged communities throughout the world.
Flowers and CVM were honored at AVMA’s national convention in Indianapolis last month. The organization represents more than 89,000 veterinarians.
“Dr. Flowers has dedicated his life to building bridges across cultures and serving communities around the world through education and training,” said Dr. Tom Meyer, AVMA President. “By sharing his veterinary and leadership skills, he has had a profound impact on the lives of thousands. I congratulate Dr. Flowers on all of his achievements and thank him for his outstanding service to animal health and the practice of veterinary medicine across the globe.”
