American Association of Equine Practitioners receives AVMA’s President’s Award



(CHICAGO, Illinois) July 18, 2013—This week, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) awards the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) the 2013 AVMA President’s Award.
During the AVMA’s Annual Convention in Chicago, July 19–23, the AVMA honors some of the nation’s top veterinarians, individuals and organizations during several events and ceremonies. Each recipient has worked tirelessly to improve the lives of both animals and people across the country and around the globe. These recipients represent the very best in all areas of veterinary medicine, from education and public service to research and private practice.

The AVMA President’s Award is given annually to recognize individuals and groups inside and outside veterinary medicine who have made a positive impact on animal, human or public health, veterinary organizations and the profession. The AAEP receives the award during the AVMA President’s Reception at 6 p.m. Monday, July 22, in the Normandie Lounge of Hilton Chicago.     

The AAEP is the world’s largest professional organization dedicated to equine veterinary medicine. Founded in 1954, the AAEP is comprised of nearly 10,000 veterinarians and veterinary students who dedicate their life's work to caring for the horse. The AAEP brings together its diverse membership from private practice, academia, regulatory medicine and research in the pursuit of one mission – to improve the health and welfare of the horse.
It is through this mission that the AAEP serves as a respected source of information for the equine industry. From animal welfare to uniform medication rules in equine competition, the AAEP dedicates resources to provide a consistent veterinary perspective to contemporary issues affecting horse health. The professional development of today’s equine veterinarian also is a primary goal of the association. The AAEP Annual Convention and the association’s six ancillary education events attract veterinarians from around the world who want to stay current on the latest clinical information and trends in equine medicine.  For more information about the AVMA, please visit www.avma.org.
