MOUNTAIN GORILLAS - Mountain Gorilla Veterinary Project Employees Travel from Africa to U.S. for Special Program

The Baltimore Times with an article on a six week visit to Baltimore Zoo by African vets.
Thanks to a generous donation from Dr. Kim Hammond of the Falls Road Animal Hospital, MGVP veterinarians from Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo are getting the chance to come to Baltimore to observe how North American veterinarians work. The MGVP participants will be learning from veterinarians at The Maryland Zoo and Falls Road Animal Hospital, as well as pathologists at the Johns Hopkins Comparative Medicine Department. It's an opportunity for the MGVP employees to see veterinary medicine at a level that, unfortunately, doesn't exist in their home countries.
