The thing that immediately comes to mind from Animal Health is our recent pill bottle re-use program. Susan Barton, the Director of Facilities Maintenance created this handy ‘pill bottle’ (complete with prescription label). The bottle can be found in the hallway between the hospital and the labs. Donors can provide empty bottles that we can re-use to dispense prescriptions to our patients. So far, it’s been working great! We’ve been collecting donations from staff and volunteers alike for a few months now and the numbers are growing! –Dr. Bill Vann Bon, Vice President of Animal Care

On Saturday, two young cooks from Shedd’s Right Bite partner, Kendall College, cooked up a sustainably harvested rainbow trout dish and shared the incredible flavors with Shedd’s guests.
