ACVS, will impress upon practitioners the surgical opportunities available for fracture repair and the associated importance of improving emergency management when he delivers the Frank J. Milne State-of-the-Art Lecture on Monday, Dec. 9 at the 2019 American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) Convention, taking place Dec. 7-11 in Denver, Colorado.
