Dr. Kelli Jones of Mississippi State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine has won the World Veterinary Poultry Association Young Veterinarian of the Year award. Jones, who is a diplomate of the American College of Poultry Veterinarians and an assistant clinical professor in CVM’s Department of Pathobiology and Population Medicine, is an expert in avian medicine and poultry disease diagnostics. She serves Mississippi’s poultry industry through her work at CVM’s Poultry Research and Diagnostic Laboratory in Pearl.
The WVPA Young Veterinarian of the Year award was created by WVPA and Pfizer Animal Health Global Poultry to recognize young veterinarians important contributions to the success of the industry. The honor was open to poultry veterinarians under the age of 35, and a panel of global poultry experts selected Jones as the winner.
Dr. Danny Magee, director of the Poultry Research and Diagnostic Laboratory, nominated Jones for the award, which includes a $5,000 travel award to be used for expenses associated with attending scientific poultry meetings.
