Press release: New York Vet
Less than two weeks ago marked the successful return of New York Vet, a two-day educational veterinary conference that was postponed last year due to COVID-19 restrictions. Veterinarians, veterinary technicians, practice managers, owners and industry professionals reunited for the event, produced by CloserStill Media, which provided attendees practical training with clinical programs, continuing education and networking opportunities within the veterinary industry.
“It was wonderful to once again gather with our friends and colleagues in New York City for a successful event,” said Christina Zoccoli, group event director, US Vet Shows. “From our clinical tracks to our business theater to our innovation workshops, New York Vet offered a unique opportunity for practical education within our amazing veterinary community.”
With 52 world-class speakers leading more than 80 conference sessions, New York Vet extended expertise in various practice areas including business, vet tech and clinical, and highlighted important topics such as oncology, anesthesiology and personal innovation. Attendees also had the opportunity to practice their skills, learn new ones and get hands on training on suturing patterns and advanced knot-tying techniques used in veterinary surgical cases in the Wound Closure Academy hands-on lab, sponsored by Johnson & Johnson. To support and encourage continuing education, sessions were available for CE credit through the American Association of Veterinary State Boards’ (AAVSB) Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE).
In addition, the latest innovations from the veterinary industry were showcased by more than 150 exhibitors, including the New York Veterinary Medical Associations Theater, a joint project of The Veterinary Medical Association of New York City and New York State Veterinary Medical Society.
