Veterinary Debt Initiative Gains Momentum

Led by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) and the Veterinary Medical Association Executives (VMAE), the Veterinary Debt initiative (VDI) has shifted direction with a new goal and strategic plan. The VDI is committed to lead efforts on education and advocacy to ensure veterinarians can pursue a lifetime of financial success. The VDI’s multi-year strategic plan includes raising awareness and providing access to resources that will enable pre-veterinary students, veterinary students and veterinarians to make highly informed financial decisions. Last month, the VDI hosted a successful volunteer meeting at the 2018 AVMA Convention in Denver and will be an integral component at the AVMA Economic Summit October 22-23, 2018 in Chicago.
