What happens after you post your BIG idea? Veterinary Visionaries' Solving Champions get to work moderating them. That means that every idea is carefully viewed. Comments are fed back to you encouraging a little more info, if needed. Or even asking you (privately) if you have considered a bit of a different angle. VV Solving Champions are YOUR champions. After all, it's only by working together that we can solve for better mental health among veterinary teams.
