Feel like life is sometimes harder than it has to be? Have a difficult time connecting what you do now to the original reason you wanted to become a veterinary professional? 

You aren’t alone. Well-being is an important focus in the profession right now, and it’s what inspired many of the sessions planned for AAHA’s reimagined conference, Connexity by AAHA, being held September 13-16 in Denver. Here’s a look at just a few of our sessions on overall well-being and healthy workplace culture:

The Personality of Veterinary Professionals: A Neuroscience Perspective
David Labno
Sponsored by Merck Animal Health
Neuroscience was the basis of a recent groundbreaking personality study of thousands of veterinary professionals. Come learn about the key findings and how they might impact your practice, including your team’s cohesion, stress levels, and communication.

Supporting You and Your Practice from Good to Great
Dr. Richard DeBowes
Sponsored by Ceva Animal Health
The quality of medicine we practice is a direct reflection of our practice’s culture and our collective mindset. The way to an enhanced culture and improved healthcare delivery is simple, but it’s not easy. Come explore how you can shift the paradigm for your practice and enhance the performance and outcomes achieved by your entire team.

Does the Veterinary Profession Have a Mental Health Crisis?
Dr. Linda Lord
Sponsored by Merck Animal Health
How does mental health affect your practice? Come take a comprehensive look at mental health and well-being in the veterinary profession and view the results of a first-of-its-kind U.S. study. You’ll learn the steps that can be taken at the organizational, practice, and individual levels to make improvements.

And many others!

We asked: What keeps you up at night?

Your answers inspired Connexity by AAHA, the conference redesigned with you in mind.
