Dr. Andy MacCabe of the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges sits down in the studio with Ernesto to talk goals, opportunity, the health of many species, collaborating with other organizations, and the benefits of a diverse profession.

Join us for this conversation to pick up some cross-discipline lessons.
