World’s poultry health experts flock to Denver for 61st AAAP conference

Poultry health professionals from more than 25 countries will gather in Denver, Colorado, July 13-17, to get the latest research, innovations and insights on disease management, biosecurity, diagnostics, responsible antibiotic usage and food safety.

“Everyone who attends this event has different interests but we all share the same goal — to make the world poultry industry even more efficient and sustainable while maintaining high standards for flock health and welfare,” said John Smith, DVM, a consulting veterinarian from Georgia and current president of the American Association of Avian Pathologists (AAAP).

AAAP’s 61st conference will begin with a half-day symposium, “Advances in the Management of Enteric Health in Poultry,” which will present new research with traditional and alternative therapies. This event was designed to complement the 2nd International Conference on Necrotic Enteritis, a separate, two-day symposium held in Denver immediately before the AAAP’s.

This year’s AAAP conference will feature more than 250 scientific sessions and posters on enteric and respiratory diseases, immunity management, food safety, parasitology, bacteriology virology and vaccinology.

AAAP will also feature two keynote speakers focusing on economically important diseases. On Saturday, July 14, Haroldo Toro, DVM, PhD, Auburn University, will present “Understanding the Success of Infectious Bronchitis Virus.”  Monday’s keynote speaker is Y.M. Saif, DVM, a past president of AAAP who will review “The History of Infectious Bursal Disease.”

AAAP’s presence will also be felt at this year’s American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) conference, which is held concurrently.  AAAP’s Small Flock Committee drew on its expertise to help AVMA develop its Small Poultry Flock Workshop, a full-day symposium that provides non-poultry veterinarians with the basic knowledge and skills needed to support this rapidly growing livestock sector.

The American Association of Avian Pathologists is an international association whose mission is to promote scientific knowledge to enhance the health, well-being, and productivity of poultry to provide safe and abundant food for the world. For more information about the 2018 AAAP conference, click here or visit aaa.info.
