From the Desk of VSPN Director, Charlotte Waack:
2016 has been a busy year for VSPN! There were many small changes behind the scenes that the members of our community may not notice, but still have an impact on how VSPN may be used. I look forward to the New Year and hope that we are able to show you some new and exciting updates for VSPN, including updates to the VSPN Notebook. The VIN Geeks are working hard to bring VSPN to being mobile friendly and also develop a new classroom that will not use Adobe Flash. We look forward to seeing some of these new developments.

May you have a safe holiday and for those who are covering emergency clinics, thank you for all you do!

The VIN/VSPN offices will be closed on Friday, December 30 for the New Year holiday. Responses to voice mail and email may take a bit longer than usual during this time. Thank you in advance for your patience.
