American Association of Zoo Veterinarians (2011)
Welcome to EAMCP/AAZV 2011
Welcome to Kansas City for the 4th annual Exotic Animal Medicine for the Clinical Practitioner Conference sponsored by the American Association of Zoo Veterinarians! It is our goal to provide an excellent, clinically relevant program for veterinarians who see exotic animals
in private practice.
The AAZV has been holding annual conferences to share knowledge and experiences with our colleagues involved in the veterinary care of captive and free-ranging wildlife for over 40 years. This annual
meeting is immediately after your conference and we would be excited to have you join us. The proceedings of the annual AAZV conference, as well as our quarterly scientific publication "The Journal of Zoo and Wildlife Medicine" are both valuable resources available to members. Please visit www.AAZV.org for more information.
We have an excellent program for you this year, thanks to the hard work of Dr. Michelle Davis and all of this year's lecturers. Many thanks also go to Dr. Rob Hilsenroth and Pam Brownlee for taking care of all of the details of the conference, and to the American College of Zoological
Medicine for sponsoring this conference for Continuing Education credits.
I hope the conference exceeds your expectations, and that you also have some time for fun while here in Kansas City! Enjoy!
Kay A. Backues, DVM, DACZM
President, American Association of Zoo Veterinarians
