The People of TEVA

2018-2019 Board of Directors

Founded in early 2009, TEVA was established by a diverse group of veterinarians to fill voids on several frontiers. Our primary goal is to improve regional equine educational opportunities for our practitioners.

Nearly as important is our second goal: to establish a level of collegiality among local and neighboring veterinarians. Working together to solve challenges, and supporting one another in our professional and personal efforts, enhances our lives and benefits this region’s veterinarians, horses and horse owners.
