EPI Awareness Update

Thank you anyone who took the time to vote!

"Recognize EPI & Identify the Genes" came in #3 out of the top 10 to win the $5,000 Pepsi "EPI" Challenge .

This funding will also allow for further EPI genetic marker(s) testing.... hopefully giving us some indication of what genes might be responsible for EPI.

The breakdown for the $5,000 is as follows:

$4,000 goes directly to Dr. Leigh Anne Clark for EPI Genetic Testing Research (goal is to identify the genetic markers for this condition)

$1,000 goes to the EPI AWARENESS project to produce and distribute via volunteers (to vets offices across the country) EPI materials to better inform the veterinarian community about EPI.
