After Hours: 29029 Everesting
About 5 years ago, Betsy Charles, DVM, MA, executive director of the Veterinary Leadership Institute, and her husband of 27 years, Drake, received the news that he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). During his illness, Charles and her husband discussed completing the 29029 Everesting experience, where participants hike the equivalent distance of Mount Everest, if Drake were to get better. However, in early 2019 Drake lost his fight with ALS and died. In honor of him and to find herself once again, Charles went on to sign up for the event that same year. However, because of COVID-19, she could not participate in the event until August 2021.View more of the Charles interview online. Visit www.medicalworldnews.com/view/after-hours-29029-everesting
After Hours: Vet Tech by Day, Comedian by Night
Veterinary medicine is a passion for Walter Brown, RVTg, VTS (ECC). However, along with his career as a veterinary technician, Brown is a comedian. Through his comedy career, Brown hopes to shed different perspectives on clinics by creating a sense of humor around things that might appear frustrating but, through laughter, can be seen through a new lens. By pulling from everyday events in his life in and out of the clinic, he hopes to make individuals laugh at the relatable content they all experience daily. He believes that through laughter and appropriate humor, he can put clients at ease about their pets’ treatments or diagnoses.View more of Brown’s interview online.
