Iowa State University Land Acknowledgement

We would like to begin this event with a land acknowledgment. Iowa State University is located on the ancestral lands and territory of the Baxoje, or Ioway Nation. The United States obtained the land from the Meskwaki and Sauk nations in the Treaty of 1842. We wish to recognize our obligations to this land and to the people who took care of it, as well as to the 17,000 Native people who live in Iowa today.

We encourage you to fully participate on social media

Please feel free to share this meeting experience and use the hashtag #NVSS2021. Also, we have a few activities planned for networking and getting to know fellow attendees virtually. Join us for trivia on August 4th and 5th.

Ontario Veterinary College at @uofg in Canada will collaborate to offer an undergraduate degree in #OneHealth. One Health is a growing field, seeking to solve health problems at the intersection of animal, human, and ecological systems.

Thank you for all that you do! During #NationalVetTechWeek we recognize and admire those playing critical day-to-day roles in preserving animal health and welfare. 🙌

Published in the new issue of @JVME_AAVMC is research that analyzes the qualitative design process within the veterinary #medicaleducation field and how these methodologies often offer a fresh and valuable perspective throughout student research.

Statement on COVID-19 

As we continue to navigate the ongoing pandemic and public health crisis, the health and safety of our community and stakeholders is of paramount concern. While the release of vaccines has marked a significant advance in this public health crisis, safety and health concerns around large gatherings will likely persist through the summer.
The Iowa State University planning team has been working diligently to assess the impact of the ongoing pandemic on the NVSS 2021 and, after careful consideration, has made the decision to present the event virtually this summer.
