March webinars: Spotlight on public and economic health

Published on March 08, 2019

Veterinarians are involved in a broad spectrum of industries, disciplines, and specialties that make up veterinary medicine: private and corporate practice, government, industry, academia, uniformed services, and more. This month, you’ll have the opportunity to explore three distinct areas of the veterinary profession, in AVMA’s online education offerings.

Our March Lead & Learn webinars focus on these topics: careers in One Health, AVMA’s soon-to-be-released Guidelines on the Depopulation of Animals, and economic conditions that influence the veterinary profession. At a glance, these topics may seem unrelated, but they are all components of the wide-ranging and critical work veterinarians do every day to protect the health and safety of humans, animals, and the world we live in.

On March 13 at Noon Central Time, join us for "What it Takes to Build a Career in One Health," sponsored by the AVMA Veterinary Career Center. You’ll hear from Dr. Eri Togami, One Health fellow at the One Health Institute, School of Veterinary Medicine at UC Davis, about what a career in One Health can look like for you. Dr. Togami will discuss core educational competencies, employment, and ongoing workforce development in the One Health arena.

Then, on March 25 at 6 PM Central Time, Dr. Steven Leary, chair of the AVMA panel that wrote AVMA’s first Guidelines for the Depopulation of Animals, will lead “When Emergency Situations Call for Difficult Decisions: AVMA’s Guidelines on Depopulation.” Dr. Leary will provide an overview of the AVMA’s new guidance document and discuss why, during times of crisis or major catastrophe, depopulation may be the most ethical and compassionate action possible.

We’ll be concluding this month’s live webinar series with AVMA’s chief economist, Dr. Matt Salois. Join us on March 28 at 6 PM Central Time for “Navigating the Winds of Economic Change.” You’ll get actionable intelligence that will help you identify and parse current economic conditions, and appreciate the trends in innovation that are impacting the veterinary profession. Thanks to Dr. Salois’ unique ability to transform economic data into meaningful insights, you’ll walk away with a solid understanding of today’s economy and steps you can take to help prepare for what’s to come.
