Personal health in every aspect of your life—mental, physical, emotional, and social—is an important focus of AVMA Convention. Explore the wealth of tools and resources available to help veterinarians, technicians, and students take ownership of your wellbeing—from personal finance to workplace culture, and physical health to compassion fatigue.

Meeting safe

The health of all attendees is of the utmost importance to the AVMA. We are working closely with the city, hotels, convention center, and offsite venues to ensure that necessary safety precautions are in place and compliant with all CDC, state, and local mandates and guidelines.

CE sessions

Attend specialized CE sessions that focus on all aspects of your health. Check back this spring for details on how to find wellbeing sessions at Convention.

Center for Wellbeing

Open daily

Center for WellbeingThis space has become a staple of the AVMA Convention, and it's back and better than ever in 2023. The AVMA knows that health and wellbeing is an essential component to thriving individuals and practices and has found it critical to provide members with resources to help individuals care for their own emotional and mental health. Wellbeing support is a focus for the AVMA and we want to bring that same focus to life at the Convention.

Stop in to learn more about AVMA's wellbeing resources, speak with a licensed mental health professional, relax in our cozy Denver lodge, recharge, get tips on staying healthy, participate in our wellbeing activities, reconnect with colleagues and MORE!

Wellbeing events

Stay on top of your physical wellbeing with sporting and fitness opportunities designed for all schedules and fitness levels. Join a yoga session, walk or run a 5K, and more. We'll have offerings available on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings before CE sessions.

AVMA Cares

Veterinarians are some of the most compassionate and altruistic people we know. With the AVMA Cares program you have an opportunity to give back to the local community while you're in town. Carve out some time in your schedule to assemble hygiene kits in the Center for Wellbeing or volunteer your time and talents at the Street Clinic. Check back this spring for signup details.
