During this pivotal and transformational time in our profession and our world, AVMA is more important than ever in guiding the future of veterinary care. Veterinary Medicine has enjoyed a long history of providing exceptional care for the animals we serve, and valuable contributions to our society. Our profession has a promising future as animals continue to play a critical role in our lives and our world. It is only together with a strong sense of purpose and conviction will we be able to face the challenges that jeopardize the strong foundation of our profession. The Global Pandemic has created a transitional time and we have stepped up to the challenge. As Veterinarians, we are experiencing exciting momentum but reaching a potential breaking point in capacity. AVMA has and must continue to seize the opportunities to learn, adjust, and support veterinarians as our world transforms.
