Opportunity for All Expenses Paid Trip to AVMA's July Convention for Veterinary School Graduates 2010 or later! - The New England Veterinary Medical Association is accepting applications through March 15 for an all expenses paid trip (up to $2500). New England applicants must submit a 1500 word essay on "What's the greatest challenge confronting veterinary medicine?" to Bill Bell, NEVMA Executive Director, at email@example.com. Veterinary Mental Health Survey Findings - The Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) published a summary of some of the basic findings of the survey many of you participated in this fall. You can find a copy of the paper at this link http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm6405a6.htm?s_cid=mm6405a6_e. A first draft of the larger manuscript that has additional findings and more discussion has just been completed and will hopefully be submitted for publication in the coming months to the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association (JAVMA). It is hoped that key stakeholders can use the findings described in both the short and longer manuscripts as a stimulus to develop measures to improve the psychological health of U.S. veterinarians. Thank you for your participation in this important effort.
