JMICAWE Vet wins International welfare award

JMICAWE Vet wins International welfare award

The JMICAWE is delighted to announce that our own Heather Bacon is this year’s recipient of the Chris Laurence Vet of the Year award, sponsored by CEVA and the Veterinary Times
Heather leads education programmes to improve the care of animals around the world in her role as Veterinary Welfare Education and Outreach Manager in the Jeanne Marchig International Centre for Animal Welfare Education, and was selected for the award award in recognition of her commitment to the continued improvement of animal welfare.
Heather was also one of the final three vets shortlisted out of over 7,000 for the PetPlan vet of the year award.
Heather said “I’m delighted to receive this award – it’s a huge honour, in light of the amazing work being done by vets around the world. The CEVA welfare awards are a fantastic opportunity to showcase the hard work being done by a whole range of people from volunteers to professionals, all over the world and I’m so excited that animal welfare work is being increasingly recognised as important to the work of veterinary professionals.”
