"Fostering Communication to Support Mental Health during COVID-19 and its Aftermath"
A team of representatives from various public health entities created the Potomac Regional Veterinary Coping, Resilience, and Challenges Survey to assess stressors veterinarians are experiencing during COVID-19, understand coping and help-seeking behaviors and disseminate appropriate resources to help with coping and resiliency.
This team presented a webinar to share essential information and encourage survey participation. This was a free live event; however, participants were given the opportunity to donate to the VMCVM Wellness Memorial Fund, where all contributions go toward supporting wellness initiatives at the college.
CE credit was given to live participants. No CE credit will be given for viewing this video now.
We apologize for any pauses or technical difficulties during this recording; at the time of the event a Tornado Warning threatened the Blacksburg area and the affected panelists were required to seek shelter.
