Keynote Speakers

James Moore, DVM, PhD

Professor, University of Georgia

This presentation will reflect my thoughts about how many of us are educating veterinary students today, changes we might make in the admission process and our educational approaches to ensure that tomorrow’s students can be successful in our curricula, and how we can better prepare them for successful careers in academic veterinary medicine.

Todd Towell, DVM, MS, DACVIM (SAIM)

Owner, Global Veterinary Consulting

This session will discuss how recent advances in diagnosis and long term management of body weight can improve outcomes in pets with osteoarthritis.

Jody Lulich, DVM, PhD, DACVIM (SAIM)

Professor, Minnesota Urolith Center, University of Minnesota

This seminar will focus on the advances of urolith management in veterinary medicine. We will discuss why stones form and their role in disease diagnosis; the science behind medical dissolution and perceived barriers to its implementation; the role of lithotripsy and improving outcomes; and effective urolith prevention.
