Professor of Surgery University of Pennsylvania Kennett Square, Pennsylvania
This seminar has several goals. It provides information on the most common reasons veterinarians contemplate suicide and proven tools that we can use as colleagues to help minimize the risk or even prevent it. Our speakers also address how we currently address suicide when it occurs, and what we can do better.
PLEASE NOTE: This seminar will be followed by the Open Forum - Wellness: Suicide Prevention in Veterinary Medicine, which will overlap with the lunch break. Pre-registration is required, and lunch will be provided with a voucher.
