Elanco Animal Health in collaboration with the American Association of Avian Pathologists (AAAP) Foundation, awarded two scholarships to students pursuing degrees in poultry science and veterinary medicine through the Elanco Memorial Scholarships which honors the memory of past Elanco poultry veterinarians and scientists by supporting learning opportunities for future generations.

“We are proud to honor the memories of Dr. Samantha Pohl and Dr. Ben Schlegal with these two scholarships,” said Dr. Sara Steinlage, Technical Advisor at Elanco. “Elanco was fortunate to have worked with these two individuals who cared deeply about the future of poultry production, and it is only fitting to remember them by providing learning opportunities to future industry leaders.”
