It's been a while since I've updated.  I have just completed 5 days of training on participatory techniques for adult learning to sharpen my education skills. We learned and applied techniques that are quite different than most of us were taught by in veterinary school, but so much more engaging.

These new techniques will be useful here and abroad.  For those of you who are unaware, Lisa, Ethan, Lexi, and I will be serving in Haiti through Christian Veterinary Mission to assist in the establisment of a veterinary technical school to train veterinary primary care providers in a country with no vet school and millions of animals.  This is an opportunity to share skills that can impact the physical and spiritual needs of many.  If you are interested in reading or learning more about this check out our letters at www.cvmusa.org/hassinger

     Please pardon our website as it gets a makeover to relfect our project. 

    For those of you that I see on your farms, hold me to utilizing my new skills to get you more involved if there are techniques you would like to learn instead of just talking my way through them. 

    Come see us this evening at our booth at the Columbia County, NY fair in Chatham.  Look for the Christian Veterinary Mission booth, we'd love to share more with you about the work in Haiti.
