Learn alongside a diverse group of peers

You may be with attendees who have been in veterinary practice for more than 20 years or less than five years. You may be next to small animal practitioners, researchers or educators. What’s certain is that they are colleagues who share your interest, and you don’t want to miss this opportunity to learn from and with such a diverse group of professionals!
