Increasing accreditation awareness and relevancy among pet owners has been an important initiative for AAHA of late. Research has indicated that the power of our 3,600+ accredited member hospitals banding together and reaching their communities with the same messages about accreditation is the most effective way for pet owners to learn the value of veterinary accreditation. 

That's why AAHA has created the Champions for Excellent Care program. While we do our part to spread the accreditation message, we also want to make it as easy as possible for our accredited members to tout their accreditation to their current and potential clients. 

AAHA's president, Tracey Jensen, DVM, hosted an AAHA Champions dinner on June 3 in Indianapolis, Ind. Eager to learn how to effectively co-brand their hospitals with AAHA, 10 accredited member hospitals attended and walked away with "brag boxes" full of branding tools as well as a wealth of knowledge about the tools AAHA provides and how to best use them to benefit their practices.
