Eleven veterinarians were elected to federal and state offices around the nation on Nov. 3. They'll bring a unique veterinary perspective as they craft public policy. Securing seats at the table for veterinarians during the legislative process at both the state and national levels is important for the AVMA and state veterinary associations' advocacy work. Veterinarians in public office help ensure the profession's perspective is heard and represented in government. As a nonpartisan organization, the AVMA works with legislators of all parties on issues impacting the veterinary profession and animal health and welfare across the country. View the AVMA@Work blog to learn more about the veterinarians elected to federal and state offices.
