Mental health and wellbeing are important issues that affect us all, and are currently some of the most vital concerns for the veterinary community. To improve the wellbeing of the profession, the AVMA, AAVMC, and Zoetis have teamed up to host the 5th Annual Veterinary Wellbeing Summit, focused on bringing together various influencers in the veterinary community to provide resources for establishing a culture of wellbeing; the Summit will focus on sharing healthy tips and strategies that can be implemented at a personal or professional level and be utilized by anyone at any time.  The Wellbeing Summit will offer:
