The IVMA Forum is offered as an opportunity for IVMA members and industry leaders to come together to discuss, learn and ask questions regarding issues and opportunities of import to veterinary medicine. The IVMA Forum will focus on the veterinarian – client – patient relationship – the VCPR. The VCPR is at the heart of the connection between the veterinarian, the client and the patient. Should this definition be changed to allow for the establishment of the VCPR virtually, or do we keep the current law which states that the animal must be “seen” to establish the VCPR? Come and participate in the conversation. You don’t have to be a registered attendee of the meeting to participate.
The IVMA membership meeting will kick of the Crossroads Veterinary Conference. IVMA Awards will be presented as well as a brief review of the highlights of 2021 for IVMA and its members. IVMA 2022 leadership will be also be installed.
Following the membership meeting, the Crossroads Veterinary Conference will kick off with our featured keynote presenter, Dr. Temple Grandin. This event is sponsored by the Indiana Animal Health Foundation in honor of Dr. Carol Ecker. Dr. Grandin is known for her trailblazing work as a spokesperson for people with autism and her lifelong work with animal behavior.
