American Heartworm Society: Request for Proposals

    WILMINGTON, Delaware—The American Heartworm Society is requesting proposals for papers to be presented at the 14th Triennial Symposium being held September 8-10, 2013 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Proposals are solicited from researchers with regard to what they are currently studying. The deadline for submissions is October 15, 2012. The Society is also interested in hearing from veterinarians as to what they would like to see presented at the symposium.

    The symposium provides an opportunity for critical dialogue on new information and issues among practicing veterinarians, researchers, and industry representatives. The core objective of the meeting is to educate veterinary practitioners as to the latest developments in diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of heartworm disease and to further scientific progress in our understanding of heartworm disease. The symposium also provides a forum for those working at the cutting edge of animal and human filarial disease research and those wanting to provide the best veterinary care possible to engage in productive dialogue.

    The American Heartworm Society, headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware, is the global resource for information regarding the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of heartworm disease. The society stimulates and financially supports research, which furthers knowledge and understanding of the disease.

    Please email your submission to 2013symposium@heartwormsociety.org. Be sure to include the following contact information: name, title, address, phone and fax numbers, and email address.
