Dr. Steven Hansen Honored by Midwestern University
The Arizona Humane Society's President and CEO, Dr. Steven Hansen, has been honored by Midwestern University with their prestigious “Shooting Star Award”. This award is presented to one individual each year who has shown exemplary commitment to education, health care or community service. “I think of the outstanding work you have already accomplished at AHS, and your many contributions to our community,” said Kathleen H. Goeppinger, Ph.D., Midwestern’s President and CEO. “I can think of no one more deserving of a Shooting Star Award this year, the same year we welcome our inaugural class for the College of Veterinary Medicine.” The Arizona Humane Society will partner with the Glendale-based Midwestern University College of Veterinary Medicine to benefit both veterinary students and animals. As a true partner in transforming Maricopa County into the animal welfare community of the future, we will work together to provide educational and service opportunities for veterinary students and staff and increase the number of homeless animals treated.
