Disease Du Jour: AAEP Convention Preview 2021
In Episode 68 of the Disease Du Jour podcast, we visit with AAEP Director of Industry Relations Keith Kleine as we look at all the education and entertainment options available at the 2021 AAEP Convention live in Nashville, Tennessee, December 4-8.
Health precautions will be stringent to protect all those who attend the 67th AAEP Convention, but early registrations show that the pandemic is not keeping many folks away from Nashville. For those who don’t choose to attend the live event, there will be a virtual option to ensure you can get your CE and enjoy the industry’s top equine veterinary presentations on-demand.
