GUELPH, ON – February 1, 2018
In continuing to advance its partnerships with leading, like-minded organizations and associations in the animal health space, LifeLearn, Inc. has announced that it will initially be a supporter level sponsor of the Veterinary Innovation Council (VIC). VIC is a collaborative, industry-wide initiative focused on leading innovation in global animal health. It was launched by the North American Veterinary Community (NAVC), a non-profit organization providing world-class professional development to the global veterinary healthcare community.

“The VIC’s focus is really on supporting the success and innovation of companies as well as practitioners in the animal health space,” said Randy Valpy, President and CEO, LifeLearn. “Becoming a sponsor of their efforts to advance innovation aligns directly with the LifeLearn focus to help veterinary practices succeed by elevating their information and technology capabilities.”

Aaron Massecar, PhD, Executive Director, VIC, is excited to welcome LifeLearn to the council – both as a sponsor and contributor.
“Sponsorships like LifeLearn’s are critical to generating the funding and resources to continue our work,” he said. “This includes a focus on advancing innovation in areas like the growth of start-up companies in the veterinary space, training the veterinarians of tomorrow, as well as advancing best practices and technology for forward-thinking practitioners.” More information is available at:
In addition to the VIC sponsorship, LifeLearn recently entered an agreement with NAVC to access some of the content it creates through its professional development activities. The content is being integrated into its new veterinary practice reference tool, LifeLearn Sofie. “The VIC sponsorship strengthens this relationship as well,” Valpy said.
According to Valpy, “Both these partnerships contribute to advancing the LifeLearn mission of helping veterinarian practices of all sizes and experience truly realize the value of knowledge, a fundamental component of our LifeLearn ECOsystem.”
