Uneeda Bryant, DVM, a veterinary pathologist from the University of Kentucky Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (UK VDL), spends a lot of time teaching school children about the lab’s role in safeguarding animal health in Kentucky and about career options in veterinary medicine and other science-related fields. For her efforts, Senator Reginald Thomas recently recognized her on the Kentucky Senate floor.

The citation stated Bryant is “recognized for her many outstanding achievements in the field of veterinary science and for her continued efforts to utilize her substantial talents to encourage young people, particularly young women, to enter into science-related fields.”

“Dr. Bryant is a most accomplished scholar in the field of veterinary science,” Thomas said. “She has published numerous articles in that field. But what’s most attractive to me about her and why I really want to honor her is that she gives back. She’s mentored and encouraged a lot of young people to enter science-related fields. We all know how important it is to get young people to go into science. I really respect her and admire her for doing that.”

Bryant was surprised when Thomas invited her to the Kentucky Senate
