Dr. Todd Archer of Mississippi State University's College of Veterinary Medicine is being honored by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine Foundation.
In recognition of his demonstrated commitment to advancing veterinary specialty medicine and "outstanding dedicated volunteer service," the assistant professor recently received the foundation's 2014 Distinguished Service Award.
He has served as a member of the foundation's board of directors and Scientific Review Committee, and was a program planner for a foundation specialty forum.
He is a University of Mississippi science graduate who went on to receive master of science and doctor of veterinary medicine degrees at MSU. A member of the CVM faculty since 2010 and a specialist in small animal internal medicine, he currently is president-elect of the Mississippi Veterinary Medical Association.
Archer's teaching areas include hematology, immunology, endocrinology and interventional radiology.
"Despite multiple other important commitments, Dr. Archer has provided exemplary service to the ACVIM Foundation, the non-profit arm of our professional organization that is dedicated to pioneering the healthcare of animals," said Dr. Andrew Mackin. "His service helps veterinary specialists by supporting the work of groundbreaking scientists, raising awareness of specialty medicine, and by mobilizing the animal-loving public in order to revolutionize current treatments and spark the discovery of future cures."
Mackin holds the college's Dr. Hugh G. Ward Endowed Chair of Small Animal Veterinary Medicine.
