AARV-Royal Canin Virtual Continuing Education Forum

Saturday, February 27, 2021

The AARV Board of Directors is excited to announce that the schedule and registration links are now available for the AARV-Royal Canin Virtual CE Forum. Royal Canin has partnered with the AARV to provide an all-day virtual CE event on Saturday, February 27th, 2021 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM EST. This opportunity will provide 4.5 RACE-approved CE credits at no cost to those who register for the RACE-Approved lectures below. This virtual event will take place on Zoom. However, please take note that because of RACE requirements, each lecture for which CE credit will be given has its own link for separate registration. Attendees must register for the main link as well as each individual link for each of the CE lectures they plan to attend as provided below.

We look very much forward to this event, and are so grateful to Royal Canin for allowing us to make this opportunity possible and at no cost to participants, during a global pandemic that has provided innumerable personal and professional challenges to our friends and colleagues.
