Two students win federal health award
Good news for the students Mitch Potter (third-year veterinary student) from Auburn University (AU) and Megan Morgan (third-year dentistry student) at the University of Alabama-Birmingham: They won the first place in the interdisciplinary category of the Department of Health and Human Services Secretary`s Award for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention.

The national writing competition featured more than 120 papers representing all health professions.

Both students will share a $7,500 prize for their health promotion proposal, `Straight from the Horse`s Mouth,` according to an Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges news release.


`This is the first veterinary student paper to use horses in a public health promotion project,` AU Professor Dr. Charles Hendrix says in a prepared statement. `The idea puts an innovative twist on hippotherapy.`

`Straight from the Horse`s Mouth` is a community education program designed to promote horse riding safety and dental health among youth, AAVMC says.

SMALL ANIMAL PRACTICE

Radiation Therapy for the Treatment of Sialocele in Dogs
Sialocele is a collection of saliva that has leaked from a damaged salivary gland or duct and is surrounded by granulation tissue. Surgery is the recognized first-line treatment. Recurrence rate after surgery is 5–14%. Salivary gland tissue is very sensitive to radiation therapy - so the aim of this new study was to characterize response rate and clinical course of dogs with sialocele treated with RT and to determine a starting dose for clinical use.
