To my colleagues around the globe,
I hope you enjoyed a peaceful holiday with family and friends. With the holidays behind us, the New Year is before us, with resolutions, improvements, and goals on our mind.
As IVSA ERO, my New Year’s Resolution is focused on improving veterinary medicine for students worldwide. The first step has been the Hill’s contract, which is due to be updated this year. Internal reconstruction within Hill’s calls for primary changes in our agreement with the company, and I have been working to assure that the agreement has the best interests of IVSA students in mind.
Beyond the Hill’s contract, I am preparing myself for NAVC, the North American Veterinary Conference, which also takes place next month. I look forward to the thousands of veterinarians, companies, and organizations that will be present at this conference and the fruitful partnerships that will be established. From NAVC, I will be traveling straight to Taiwan to see all of YOU at symposium!
I look forward to the New Year and all of the wealth and advancements it brings for our association, but moreso, I wish for health and happiness in the next year for all of my friends around the world.
