announcing today are just the beginning. We plan many more exciting and new
opportunities for virtual engagement to come,” said NAVC CEO Gene O’Neill. “The
NAVC is opening the doors to the best CE and events in the industry, making
them universally available to veterinary professionals all over the world in
new and engaging ways. With new programs and events we will present throughout
the year, virtually and in-person, veterinary professionals everywhere can map
out and meet their year-round learning and development goals through the NAVC.
There’s no need to go anywhere else.”
