Many have asked Dr. Ghislaine Dujovne, who is from Santiago, Chile, and an equine theriogenology resident in the Department of Clinial Sciences, how to help with earthquake relief for the people of Chile. Thankfully Dr. Dujovne’s family is fine, but there are many persons who need aid, especially those who lived near the epicenter where whole towns were destroyed by the tsunami that followed.
