In the ninth episode of the Voices of Veterinary Medicine podcast, my friend and mentor, Dr. Alicia Ragni, talks about her experiences on the Illinois State Veterinary Medical Board. Dr. Ragni explains how she got on the board, her motivations for accepting the extra work of this unpaid position, and how understanding the processes and protocols of veterinary medical board investigations actually decreased her anxiety about practicing veterinary medicine in this increasingly litigious society. This interview was recorded at the Wild West Veterinary Continuing Education Conference in Reno, Nevada, and Dr. Ragni graciously let me interview her despite a bad case of laryngitis.
