Education & Events

As part of our ongoing commitment to veterinary education and research, The Veterinary Cancer Center (The VCC) holds two annual continuing education seminars. These seminars are fully accredited through the American Association of Veterinary State Boards and Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE). In addition we are in the process of putting together a continuing education series for veterinary technicians.   

We all work hard and that sometimes means we do not always having enough time to relax and have fun. For that reason The VCC also comes up with unique and innovated ways for veterinaries and their staff, to connect on a personal level. Check back regularly to see upcoming events and activities.


 

Veterinary hospital doctors and support staff are invited to field a team(s) and bring their adoring public to cheer them on as they compete in interactive, intellectual and physical games in the ACF Veterinary Challenge™.  

Participating teams will enjoy an evening of fun, laughter and refreshments as they vie for the coveted ACF Veterinary Challenge™ Champion Trophy & Grand Prize, build team pride, forge bonds in the local community and draw public attention to the similarities between pet & human cancer prevention, research and development of effective treatments. 

Participant donations go to the Animal Cancer Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to finding a cure for cancer by funding research in comparative oncology, the study of naturally occurring cancers in pets & people.

Trophies and gift prizes awarded as well in these fun categories:  Best Team Spirit Trophy, Best Team Name, Best Team Costume Trophy, Best Feat of Strength Trophy, and 1st Runner- Up Points Trophy. Entrants receive event tee shirts!
