Veterinary conference for DVMs, technicians & veterinary professionals to engage in topics on small, large, marine & exotics animal medicine

About this event

"This is our first virtual conference - although as Caribbean people we will miss the personal contact, the face-to-face interaction, "de lyme", "de gyaff", outside of the lecture rooms - we can use this opportunity to get quality continuing professional education on a wide range of topics while still making the linkages and establishing the networking contacts relevant to our practice in the Region".
