Log on for Learning: MVC 2021 Veers into Virtual

The whole world is experiencing the ripple effect of the coronavirus pandemic—and likely will for many months to come. With the 2021 Midwest Veterinary Conference looming on the horizon, OVMA made the decision to pivot to a virtual format. Though this was unlikely to surprise anyone, there are still many unknowns about next year’s annual convention. In this episode, OVMA Executive Director Jack Advent sits down with Mia to discuss what we do know at this point about the 2021 MVC.

In part two, Krysten introduces FVP listeners to OVMA’s new Government Relations Director, Michael Guastella, who shares how his path led him to the OVMA and what his goals are for the future of the Association.
