More details about this program:
One of my favorite quotes is You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf by Jon Kabat-Zinn. Practicing veterinary medicine during a pandemic may feel like trying to surf in the midst of a tsunami some days but like the resilient community you are, you can not only learn to navigate the waters but actually thrive in the midst of it all.
This webinar will teach you how to handle the stressors and challenges of pandemic practice but also how to take exceptional care of yourself in the process. This is the combination for amazing mental health and there's never been a better time for it. Jump in, the water's fine!

The CAVMA BOD feels strongly that to be effective these Suicide Prevention and Self Care meetings must be available free of charge to our entire veterinary community, including staff. Towards that goal we are all extremely fortunate that our own Central Texas Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Hospital (CTVSEH) has partnered with the CAVMA to sponsor this series.
