AAHA Con 2023

Connexity is now AAHA CON: the annual conference of the American Animal Hospital Association.

This September, join the best of the best in veterinary medicine in San Diego for a few days of networking, hands-on learning, and industry thought leadership.

If you are a veterinarian, practice manager, technician, or part of the staff at a clinic, AAHA CON is the place to refresh and reinvigorate your passion for the industry. And, with over 80 hours of medical and practice management CE, there is something for everyone.

We’ll kick off the event by addressing how fear can hold us back from being our best, as keynote Rebecca Heiss, Ph.D., shares from her research.

When you join us, you’ll be up close and personal with internationally known experts. Learn about all things dental with Brook Niemiec, DVM, DADVC. We’ll discuss the nuances of diabetes and other endocrinology challenges with Renee Rucinsky, DVM, DABVP, and get deep into arthritis and orthopedics with Courtney Campbell, DVM, DACVS-SA.
