Pedro Villegas honored by Georgia House of Representitives

The Georgia House of Representatives passed a resolution last month honoring Pedro Villegas, a professor in the College of Veterinary Medicine, for his contributions to the poultry industry in Georgia and worldwide.

Villegas has developed vaccines and procedures that help to stop the spread of poultry disease or mitigate its effects. He consults partners in Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking countries, especially, but has worked on projects throughout Asia and even Mauritius.
