About the Author(s):

Sandra F. Amass is the associate dean for engagement and a professor of veterinary clinical sciences at the Purdue College of Veterinary Medicine. Her responsibilities include the coordination of P‐12 outreach programs for the veterinary school. Dr. Amass is researching methods to diversify the veterinary profession by exciting students who are underrepresented in veterinary medicine about careers in veterinary medicine. She has formed research teams to study the perceptions that children and the public have about the profession and the impact of P‐12 publications, role models, and educational programs on these perceptions. She is a co‐PI on the Fat Dogs and Coughing Horses Program, a cooperative effort funded by NIH/NCRR/SEPA to develop educational programs for P‐12 students and the public about the science involved in keeping people healthy. Dr. Amass has previous experience as an editor of two Purdue University Press books.
