The WVA Virtual Seminar of Food Security

Thursday 29th April 2021, 15:00 - 17:00 CET

You are invited to join us at The WVA Virtual Seminar of Food Security, taking place online on Thursday 29th April 2021 15:00 – 17:00 CET.

The WVA’s recent release of a position statement on food security and nutrition, combined with the impact of SARS-CoV-2 on food supply chains throughout the world, make this a relevant, timely topic for veterinary continuing education.

This seminar will raise awareness and promote the veterinary role in achieving global food security through the establishment of relevant partnerships with other professionals, integrating veterinary expertise into current and future global food security programs and identifying possible workforce opportunities for veterinarians outside of clinical practice.
