Celebrating the 2018 El Blanco Award Recipients

El Blanco Awards Recipients - Tom and Julie Atwood

In May, the school was pleased to announce that Tom and Julie Atwood, longtime hospital clients and supporters of the school, received the 2018 El Blanco Award. Their important partnership has included supporting equine research, promoting disaster response preparedness, and hosting events to benefit the school and build philanthropic support for equine health.

The El Blanco Award recognizes significant contributions that animal owners and other benefactors have made to clinical veterinary medicine by presenting afflicted animals for clinical studies, offering hypotheses and evaluations of therapy, and supporting clinicians at the UC Davis veterinary hospital who pursue novel diagnostic or therapeutic methods.
