CVMA Media Training
On March 13, CVMA will be hosting a day-long media training workshop to help veterinary professionals build skills for working with media. As an expert in your field, you may be called upon from time to time to deliver facts about animal health topics and general pet care by the media. Speaking to the media becomes more complex if you are addressing potential legislation, crisis situations, or hot media “run-away” stories. For any person who will represent their practice or organization, media training is essential. Click here for more details and to register.
