Veterinarians gathered at AVMA's Annual Convention in Chicago for valued education opportunities, but they also enjoyed the chance to connect with colleagues at a variety of social events, according to AVMA CEO Dr. Ron DeHaven. One highlight of the event, according to Dr. DeHaven, was the Animal Connections: Our Journey Together exhibit, which sheds light on the many ways veterinarians improve the lives of people and animals, from their work in food safety and security to biomedical research. The exhibit will be on display around the area through Aug. 9 and is "the convention's gift to Chicago," Dr. DeHaven said. He also discussed the importance of preventive care and special initiatives designed to help get more cats to the veterinarian's office.
