We are extremely excited to announce that we will be having our first ever N.C. Association of Minority Veterinarians Pet Health Fair on October 27th from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.! It will take place on the campus of NC A&T State University Webb Hall 1601 E Market St. in Greensboro, NC.
The purpose of the Pet Health Fair is to:
- Provide low-cost, basic preventative health care for pet owners in under-represented and urban communities
- Increase the awareness of the importance of veterinary care in urban communities
- Increase the awareness of the existence of the NC Association of Minority Veterinarians and increase our association’s outreach into the community
- Raise funds for the Dr. Tracy Hanner Endowed Scholarship
- Provide an opportunity for underrepresented minority pre-veterinary students to gain experience working under the supervision of veterinarians
All proceeds from the health fair will go towards the newly created Dr. Tracy Hanner Endowed Scholarship fund, which will provide scholarship funds for 1-2 underrepresented minority students at the NC State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit NC organization that is dedicated to improving diversity and inclusion of the veterinary profession. We raise funds to go towards scholarship opportunities for underrepresented minority students at the NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine and at the Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine. We also serve as a resource for NC pet owners in need of veterinary services by using our network to help them locate a NCAMV member veterinarian near them.
In addition to providing scholarship opportunities and promoting diversity and inclusion, we also serve as a platform to promote the collegiality of underrepresented minority veterinarians within the state of N.C., which contributes to the inclusive nature of our association. Our association meets bi-annually to fellowship and hear a CE talk from leaders within the veterinary community. We typically have speakers present on diversity/inclusion, leadership, success, wellbeing, and the importance of financial literacy within the veterinary profession.
