The AVMA president, as well as AVMA staff members, are often invited to speak at veterinary conferences and meetings both at home and abroad. Members of Congress also seek our expertise when they ask us to testify on issues important to the veterinary profession and public health. Knowing that many of you are limited in your ability to attend many of these functions, we always look for ways to make what we say available to you.
That’s why we post our speeches and testimonies on the AVMA website. The topics range from diversity in veterinary medicine to antimicrobial resistance, One Health and the veterinary workforce. We know it’s the not the same as being there, but visiting our online Press Room lets you read our presentations in their entirety and hopefully further enlightens you as to how we are representing the veterinary profession – and your interests – at meetings and events around the globe.
