ICVA Chief Executive Officer to serve as Vice Chair of NAP Veterinary Medicine Academy

ICVA congratulates our Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Heather Case, on her election as vice chair of the National Academies of Practice (NAP) Veterinary Medicine Academy (VMA).

NAP is an interprofessional nonprofit organization founded in 1981. Its members work to promote accessible and affordable healthcare for all through patient advocacy, interprofessional collaboration, and model excellence in inclusive preventative care.

Veterinary medicine seeks to enhance the health and well-being of animals, as well as the safety of animal products used by people. As such, it plays a vital role in human health and quality of life. As vice-chair, Dr. Case plans to highlight this role and the importance that veterinary medicine plays as a whole in interprofessional team-based health care.

Dr. Case joins her fellow University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine alum, Dr. Bob Murtagh, who will serve as Chair. The two will begin their roles at the 2023 NAP Forum on March 30 in Washington, D.C.
