Poultry disease specialists to gather in San Antonio this August

Poultry veterinarians and disease specialists from more than 25 countries will gather in San Antonio, Texas, on 5-9 August for the 59th annual conference of the American Association of Avian Pathologists. The programme kicks off on Saturday, 6 August, with a timely symposium, “Emerging and Reemerging Zoonotic Diseases,” which will focus on zoonotic avian influenza outbreaks, particularly HPAI H5N1 and, most recently, H7N9 outbreaks in humans in China.

Led by featured speaker Robert O’Connor, DVM, Foster Farms, the five-hour session will also focus on data collection and analysis for effective disease prevention and control, as well as communicating science-based information to legislators, media and the general public.  Read More
