When you say you're a technician, most people probably ask, "What's that?" You can educate your clients—and co-workers—about the job you do with an educational bulletin board in your reception area in honor of National Veterinary Technician Week, Oct. 14 through 20. For example, your board might include job descriptions for technicians, what they do for the pets and clients at your practice, and pictures and biographies of your technicians. Check out our sample on the left. Want one like it?

You can download a free sample technician profile form at http://firstlinemag.com/.
