Believe & belong in veterinary medicine: June 10, St. Petersburg College

Blend is hosting a free outreach event for kids and teens ages 12 to 15 at St. Petersburg College Veterinary Technology Center on Saturday, June 10, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

If you've thought about being a veterinarian, this event offers hands-on experience in the day-to-day lives of a veterinarian and veterinary technician at the college. Blend's pipeline events are aimed at building the next generation of veterinarians. 

Parents or guardians are also invited. Learn more about how to support your child through vet tech or veterinary school. 

Learn from the experts - speakers include Dr. Niccole Bruno, DVM, founder and CEO of blend and a small animal veterinarian, and Walter Brown, a veterinary technician. Additional speakers are Drs. Stephanie Brown, DVM; Christina Fernandez, DVM; vet tech Wayne Hartley Jr. and Dr. Jenese Williams, DVM.  

Bruno launched blend during the pandemic, with an aim of helping veterinarians and aspiring veterinarians and vet techs feel that they belong in this field. As a young girl growing up in New York City, she knew at a young age that she wanted to be a veterinarian. But she didn't see anyone in the profession who looked like her, a person of color.

Bruno's mother, who was an educator, helped Nicole find volunteer work and connected her with doctors of color at a time when doing research meant looking at newspapers, magazines and books. As a veterinary student at Cornell University, Bruno worked with Veterinary Students as One Color, which was launched by her roommate. The organization known as VOICE still exists today, with chapters at various veterinary schools across the country. VOICE is supported by Zoetis and has chapters at 25 veterinary schools.
