Word of the Day
        The Word of the Day is a training tool implemented at FLSC to assist our staff in becoming fluent in the languages of  research,  medicine and  animal care. We have included the Word of the Day on our web site as a reference for our staff.  Each working day a new vocabulary word is introduced on the board in the FLSC foyer.  At FLSC staff meetings, a quiz on Word of the Day is given with a traveling prize awarded to the individual with the highest score. Eek and Squeak are 2013's traveling trophy. The quiz winners will vie to give Eek and Squeak  permanent homes at the end of the year.  For a clue to the bonus word or Tie Breaker on this month's quiz, search the archives for the wagging dog!  We welcome all life-long learners to enjoy the FLSC Word of the Day.
