“Wellness is the quality or state of being healthy in body and mind which can also be perceived as an approach to healthcare that emphasizes preventing illness and prolonging life.”


The Standing Committee on Wellness is one of the youngest divisions of the IVSA. We are committed to understanding the needs of students and veterinarians so we can provide comprehensive education on mental health, emotional intelligence and physical well-being.
