    William Moyer, DVM, has been named the 2009 vice president of the American Association of Equine Practitioners. Dr. Moyer, of College Station, Texas, will join the Executive Committee next year and then serve as AAEP president in 2011.

    Moyer is professor of sports medicine and head of the Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences of the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. He also serves on the board of directors of the College of Veterinary Medicine and is associate director of the Center for Equine Business Studies. He began his career at Texas A&M in 1993 following more than two decades on faculty at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. While at Penn, Moyer held numerous positions, including director of the Equine Outpatient Clinic and professor of sports medicine.

    Recognized for his expertise in equine lameness, Moyer has authored or co-authored several textbooks, including A Guide to Equine Joint Injection and Regional Anesthesia and A Guide to Equine Hoof Wall Repair. His research also has appeared in numerous refereed journals and he has been an invited speaker at continuing education meetings worldwide.

    Moyer is an active AAEP member, most recently serving on the association's board from 2001 - 2004. He chaired the Equine Insurance Committee for three years and has been a member of the Educational Programs Committee. Moyer also co-facilitated the Equine Dentistry Forum held during the annual convention.

    A 1970 graduate of the Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine, Moyer completed both an internship and a residency at the University of Pennsylvania. He also is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the Texas Veterinary Medical Association.

    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, the AAEP reaches more than 5 million horse owners through its nearly 10,000 members worldwide and is actively involved in ethics issues, practice management, research and continuing education in the equine veterinary profession and horse industry.
