Antibiotic Resistance Conference | November 8

“Changes in Veterinary Antibiotic Regulations: What these will mean to the practitioner”
Sponsored by | Kansas State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory

The FDA has instituted more restrictive antimicrobial-use regulations that will instantly change the way you, the veterinary practitioner, will practice in the future.

Join us for a dynamic continuing education conference that will focus on the key effects these new regulations will have on the future use of antimicrobials in veterinary medicine.

This conference will include an expert slate of speakers including: international practitioners who have been under similar regulations for years; academic pharmacologists; US regulatory authorities and various producer advocates.

While presentations and interactive discussions will focus primarily on the impact the new antimicrobial-use regulations will have on the practicing veterinarian, the conference is open to anyone interested.

Saturday, November 8 | 8 AM to 4PM
Hilton Garden Inn and Conference Center | 410 S 3rd Street, Manhattan KS
