What is the VOA?

“The primary effort and purpose of the Veterinary Osteoarthritis Alliance is the creation of a platform to advance the management of osteoarthritis by developing theoretical and practical training opportunities, by providing access to the latest research, evidence and technologies and by the facilitation of a multi- professional collaboration to address and improve the results of disease management.
