ASCEND New Heights in Equine Practice

REGISTRATION KIT

65th Annual Convention & Trade Show December 7-11, 2019 | Denver, Colorado


The practice of equine veterinary medicine is constantly evolving as new diagnostics and treatments supplement tried-and-true methods to enable delivery of high-quality care. For many practitioners, however, the challenge is more than simply staying current with care innovations; it is also managing financial obstacles and the expectations of round-the-clock care that create barriers to personal wellbeing. At the AAEP’s 65th Annual Convention, ascend new heights professionally and personally with a robust educational program that will help you administer the latest science-backed solutions to patients; sessions and resources to strengthen your emotional resilience so that you can live your best life; and opportunities to establish beneficial connections with your fellow members and veterinary suppliers. No matter your career stage or aspirations, climb the next step alongside your AAEP colleagues this December in the Mile High City.

Keynote Address GenderSpeak: Working Together Successfully Tammy Hughes 9:00-10:00 a.m. Sponsored by Merck Animal Health. The Science of Healthier Animals. Men and women grow up in different cultures and learn different lessons about teamwork, problem solving and leadership. These differences are often difficult to see, let alone manage. Against the timely backdrop of rapidly changing demographics in the equine veterinary profession, author, executive and communications consultant Tammy Hughes will address the central factors that drive gender-related communication problems while emphasizing the importance of men and women valuing each other’s strengths during her humorous and energizing convention keynote presentation “GenderSpeak: Working Together Successfully.” Hughes is president of The Heim Group, a prominent consulting firm for gender differences and communication in the workplace. As a speaker, workshop facilitator and experienced business leader, she helps companies learn how to value the unique styles of men and women and turn them into a competitive advantage. Among her clients are McDonald’s, Procter & Gamble, General Electric, British Petroleum and Sony Pictures Entertainment. She launched her career in the Corporate Education and Training Division of Xerox Corporation before joining The Heim Group in 1995. With Dr. Pat Heim, Hughes co-authored the third edition of Hardball for Women. She also authored the white paper “Born in One Generation, Thinking Like Another.”

AAEP | 65th Annual Convention 2019 Denver


Monday, Dec. 9 Frank J. Milne State-of-the-Art Lecture The Tao of Equine Fracture Management Dean Richardson, DVM, DACVS 7:30-10:15 a.m. Moderator: Steve Trostle Produced by the AAEP Foundation Sponsored by Platinum Performance, “Good Nutrition is Good Medicine.” The enormous progression of equine orthopedic surgery in recent decades hasn’t quelled broad public perception that a broken bone is a death sentence for a horse. Imaging advancements enabling more accurate and early diagnosis, technology developments leading to superior instruments and implants, and important philosophical changes have resulted in successful outcomes for many seriously injured horses that previously would never have been treated. During his lecture, renowned equine orthopedic surgeon Dr. Dean Richardson will impress upon practitioners the surgical opportunities available for fracture repair and the associated importance of improving emergency management and refining surgical techniques. You will acquire a thorough understanding of and ability to communicate the treatment options available for horses with major bone and joint injuries. Dr. Richardson is the Charles W. Raker Chair in Equine Surgery and Chief of Large Animal Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine’s New Bolton Center. His research and clinical interests have focused on improving fracture repair and joint surgery. Dr. Richardson received his veterinary degree from The Ohio State University in 1979 and completed his internship at New Bolton Center, where he has been ever since. He is perhaps best known as leader of the New Bolton Center veterinary team that treated 2006 Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro following serious hind leg injuries sustained in the Preakness Stakes. Despite his administrative load, Dr. Richardson maintains a busy clinical practice, oversees a research laboratory and still greatly enjoys teaching veterinary students, interns and residents. His accolades include numerous teaching awards as well as the 1997 Pfizer Award for Excellence in Research, the 2006 Special Eclipse Award (as part of “Team Barbaro”) from the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, and a Special Commendation from the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2007.

Available for $10.50 through rail ticket vending machines, the A Line service is considerably less expensive than taking a taxi. A Line travel time between the airport and Union Station is 37 minutes. Trains depart every 15 minutes morning through evening and every 30 minutes at night. Taxis are available at Union Station to transport attendees to their hotels. You may also schedule an Uber or take the free 16th Street MallRide shuttle bus, which has a stop near several convention hotels.
