Veterinary care for all

“We are writing the textbook here,” said Dr. Michael Blackwell, director of the Program for Pet Health Equity at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. “We are writing the book on what it means to improve access to veterinary care.” That book puts veterinarians, animal welfare advocates, and social workers at the forefront, working together, to find ways to provide veterinary care to underserved families.

Veterinary care access was the central topic during the first Access to Veterinary Care Symposium, hosted by the PPHE, June 28–29 in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Over 100 attendees from across the U.S. and Canada
