This six-day event brought together the world’s leaders in equine infectious illness, including veterinarians, researchers, pharmaceutical companies, and other horse-industry professionals. Topics covered included equine herpesvirus, West Nile virus, immunology, reproduction, parasitology, international movement of horses, and many more.
