Veterinarian Mia Cary will help participants in the first virtual Purdue Veterinary Conference discover how to say “no” in order to say “yes” to the things that matter most when she gives the Wellness Keynote on Wednesday, September 23.  Utilizing the virtual format for the 2020 conference, Dr. Cary will present an interactive keynote focusing on work-life integration.  Participants will discuss why work-life balance is unrealistic and how work-life integration will set us free.  Tools and resources will be shared for managing stress, finding focus, and learning how to thrive regardless of role, title, or practice type.

A 1999 University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine graduate, Dr. Cary specializes in leadership, communication, strategy, teamwork, innovation, and well-being with the purpose of activating others to thrive. Her professional experience includes leadership and education roles at the AVMA, NAVC, Boehringer Ingelheim, and Novartis Animal Health.  She currently serves as CEO and change agent for Cary Consulting, CEO for the Pride Veterinary Medical Community (PrideVMC), serves on the board of advisors for the Veterinary Entrepreneurship Academy (VEA), and is a past president of the American Association of Industry Veterinarians. 

The 2020 virtual Purdue Veterinary Conference will offer three days of high quality tracks on small animal, practice management, equine, exotics, ruminants, swine, one health and emergency preparedness, and topics of interest for veterinary nurses.  Attendees can earn up to 24 hours of continuing education, and will have access to our virtual exhibit hall.  This year’s conference would not be possible without the generosity of our sponsors:  IDEXX, Banfield Pet Hospital, the Indiana Board of Animal Health/Indiana State Department of Health, Nutrena, Purina, Zoetis, Elanco, Hill’s Pet Nutrition, and Coyne Veterinary Services.
