2017 Annual Meeting

Highlights from the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists 2017 Annual Meeting.

The American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists (AAVP) was founded in 1956 and is a scientific and educational organization. Members of AAVP are interested in parasites of companion, food-producing, domesticated animals, and wildlife; some of which are transmissible to humans. We study these parasites to ultimately find new or better ways to diagnose, prevent, treat, or reduce infections in animals and in humans.

The American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists (AAVP) will hold its 63rd Annual Meeting July 14-17, 2018, at the Curtis Hotel, Denver, CO, USA. We very much enjoyed this venue for our conference a few years back and look forward to returning. The meeting promises to deliver a varied, exciting, program that will bring together scientists from academia, industry, government as well as private practitioners. With the growing concerns around parasiticide resistance, vectors and vector-borne diseases, the changing regulatory environment, and the launch of many new products for the control of parasites, there has never been a better time to attend this meeting.
