Florida Racetrack Practitioner Selected as AAEP Vice President
Dr. Scott Hay, president and managing shareholder of Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based racetrack practice Teigland, Franklin and Brokken DVMs, Inc., has been named AAEP’s 2019 vice president. He will be installed during the Dec. 4 President’s Luncheon at the 64th Annual Convention in San Francisco, Calif., and will assume the role of AAEP president in 2021.
Dr. Hay joined Teigland, Franklin and Brokken shortly after graduating from Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1988. His clinical focus is on lameness, performance evaluations and purchase examinations.
Since joining in the AAEP in 1988, Dr. Hay has volunteered considerable time and expertise in service to the association. He credits his dedication to the AAEP to the culture of his practice, saying, “The founding fathers of my practice have always seen the importance of the AAEP and encouraged their colleagues to be involved in the organization. Most of my involvement with AAEP has been on racing issues, but I look forward to working in the organization from a broader perspective.”
He is currently a veterinary spokesperson for the On Call program and previously served on the board of directors from 2008-2011, as well as chair of the Racing Committee and as a member of the Professional Conduct and Ethics Committee.
In addition, he is co-chair of the Racing Medication and Testing Consortium Scientific Advisory Committee and a member of the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation Advisory Committee.
The American Association of Equine Practitioners, headquartered in Lexington, Ky., was founded in 1954 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the health and welfare of the horse. Currently, AAEP reaches more than 5 million horse owners through its over 9,000 members worldwide and is actively involved in ethics issues, practice management, research and continuing education in the equine veterinary profession and horse industry.
