S. Kwane Stewart, DVM
Dr. Kwane Stewart graduated with his DVM degree from Colorado State University in 1997 and has been practicing veterinary medicine for 25 years. His career has spanned across most aspects of the profession, including private practice, emergency, shelter medicine, nonprofit work, and now as Netflix’s veterinarian. He is considered one of the most foremost authorities on protecting animals in film. But it was his time as county veterinarian in a struggling California town during the recession that placed him on his most important path—helping the pets of people experiencing homelessness or financial hardship. Today, his work and charitable organization Project Street Vet seeks to provide as much free veterinary care to this vulnerable population as possible…and spread some goodwill along the way.
The Power of Giving Back: How WE Hold This Unique Gift!
For many care professionals in the veterinary field, we were driven at a young age by an intense passion to help those that couldn’t help themselves—to show compassion, empathy, and love for the animals of the world that provide so much for us. Dr. Kwane Stewart believes this quality is what sets us apart from other professions. In this keynote presentation, Dr. Stewart will share moving stories and experiences that reflect the child which still resides in us all. Kindness continues to keep this planet spinning, and he is here to remind you why.
