Connecting Equity & Inclusion to Wellness in Veterinary Medicine
If we want to provide quality care to patients, then we must be committed to the wellbeing of those working within the profession. This session will explore how veterinary wellbeing is directly connected to discrimination and oppression. We will explore concrete ways veterinary hospitals can promote wellness in context of discrimination so that our wellness approaches are both equitable and inclusive for all.
