The American Association of Veterinary State Boards (AAVSB) approved National Mastitis Council’s (NMC) application for continuing education (CE) credits. Veterinarians attending the 2020 NMC Annual Meeting, Jan. 28-31, in Orlando, Fla., may earn up to 18 RACE-approved (Registry of Approved Continuing Education) CEs.
“Continuing education, research and networking play key roles in the culture of veterinary medicine and animal scientist fields,” says Jason Lombard, with the U.S. Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service Veterinary Services, Field Epidemiology Investigation Services, Fort Collins, Colo., and NMC president. “Education is a crucial part of NMC’s culture. Thus, we’re extremely pleased to offer RACE-approved CEs for NMC’s 59th Annual Meeting.”
NMC’s annual meetings, regional meetings and various resources provide a forum for education and global exchange of information on milk quality, mastitis and relevant research. “We welcome veterinarians and animal scientists to join us in Orlando to enhance their udder health knowledge and skills, and then communicate that information to their clients to help them control mastitis and improve milk quality,” says Lombard.
AAVSB CE credits may be earned by attending short courses and general sessions. To view specific topics and the schedule, go here.
