Millions of families struggle to access veterinary care mainly because of limited funds. Lack of veterinary care negatively impacts the whole family and potentially the community. Dr. Michael Blackwell will speak about this national family crisis and AlignCareTM, a One Health healthcare system to address it. By establishing new interprofessional collaborations, aligning resources and activities, and mobilizing communities, more underserved families can gain access to veterinary care. All pets and their families deserve access to veterinary care and this can become a reality through our individual and collective determination.
