The newest treatment techniques in emergency care will be presented during the American Association of Equine Practitioners’ 20th Annual Resort Symposium, to be held Jan. 29–Jan. 31, 2018, at the Four Seasons Resort at Wailea on the island of Maui.

Comprehensive, half-day educational sessions will expand attendees’ knowledge of practical critical care techniques in cases of emergency, including neonatal, respiratory, trauma and colic. Presenters are Drs. Benjamin Buchanan, Diana Hassel and Pamela Wilkins, leading authorities in critical care.

Following sessions, attendees will want to grab the sunscreen and explore the natural splendor of the island. Optional group excursions will include a waterfall hike, sunset sail and whale watch.

The Resort Symposium qualifies attendees for 15 CE credits and is sponsored by AAEP Educational Partners Boehringer Ingelheim and IDEXX.
