Dr. Connie De Haan lead an important discussion about using failure as a learning experience to foster personal and professional growth, strengthen the veterinary team, and improve care.

Dr. Constance De Haan is a veterinary radiologist and Medical Director at IDEXX Telemedicine Consultants, and her talents can’t be boxed in - she loves science and art, enjoys caring for people and pets, and supports local and global communities. She is as comfortable in a kayak as she is in a darkroom interpreting radiographs.
