Why You Should Attend Real Life Real Impact?

Real Life Real Impact weekends are spiritual retreats designed for veterinary students and professionals.  During these weekends, students have an opportunity to meet Christian veterinarians in private practice, talk with CVM’s long-term field staff, find out more about CVM short-term mission trips, fellowship with students from other veterinary schools and be refreshed in their walk with Christ.

What to expect:
*  Group Worship Sessions
*  Guest Speakers
*  Seminars
*  Networking

CVM wants you to walk away refreshed, knowing that you are a part of a community of Christian Veterinary Professionals that seek to live out their faith in their daily lives.
