BlackDVM Network was founded in 2018 by Dr. Tierra Price, a then veterinary student, who felt isolated in the profession. She was looking to connect with people who looked like her and find mentors she could relate to. She created BlackDVM Network to serve as a place to connect Black veterinarians, technicians, assistants, and students and it has grown into so much more.

BlackDVM Network is a platform for the empowerment of Black veterinary professionals. It is our mission to create a community for Black veterinary professionals to grow, connect,  and advance veterinary medicine.
