EVENT DETAILS

Dear Equine Summit Attendee, 

 

The University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine student chapter of the AAEP is THRILLED to have you at this year's Equine Summit. We are pumped that we are back in person for this event and can’t wait to see you bright and early THIS SATURDAY!

 

Here are a few details you should know about the event!

 

  • The address of the event (The UGA Veterinary Teaching Hospital) is 2200 College Station Rd.

    • Here is a google maps link that will take you directly to the parking lot: https://goo.gl/maps/5qVfWF6MQVVDawpb9

    • There will be signs on the facility grounds to direct you to the appropriate place to go.

    • Please DO NOT park in client parking. Instead, follow the signs for parking specific to our event!

  • Event will begin at the Veterinary Education Center at the UGA Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Follow the signs for the event and parking, and the building will be right across the road from the parking lot. There will be students wearing green polos helping to direct you inside as well. Please do not enter the large animal hospital through any entrance – this is not where the event is going to take place.

  • Check in will begin at 7:15a. During this time, light breakfast and coffee options will be available to you. If you are a UGA vet student attending, you must present your UGA student ID or 810 number at check in.

  • Schedule of events - In summary, the first topic will be led by Dr. Cassan Pulaski to all attendees in the main lecture hall, Alumni Hall, starting at 8am. For the following three lecture hours, attendees will have the option to pick between the two topics listed. We will have the schedule for each room posted on the doors.

  • The lunch hour will be from 12 - 1pm. Lunch tickets will be provided in your registration bag that you receive at check in courtesy of UGA scAAEP club via a food truck called Wrapped Wright. They will offer tacos made to order, but you will be able to choose from steak, shrimp, chicken, or veggie. Optional toppings include shredded cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, and bell peppers with additional condiments offered on the side. It will come with a side of yellow rice and a drink. 

  • After lunch, we will move on to the demo portion of the day with all 3 demos occurring in the lameness arena. Our student team who will be wearing green polos will direct everyone to the lameness arena via a short walk around the outside of our facility. Please wait for direction from our team at the end of lunch to move to the lameness arena.  

    • The attendees will be split into groups at check in (red, black, or white tote bag) for these demos and will rotate every hour. 

    • It is important to note that per UGA Animal Care rules, because these animals are owned by UGA, they should only be touched and handled by designated UGA students, staff, and faculty.

  • The mini trade show will be running from 8am - 2pm. Please stop by our lovely sponsor booths for a chat! 

  • Please do not wander into the main hospital. Due to the change in recent COVID numbers, tours of the facility are limited and will not be offered during our event. 

 

Our current COVID Recommendations as of August 5th are as follows:

“Currently, the CDC is still classifying our region in the high community transmission category. Clarke County has been fluctuating between medium and high; with the surrounding counties of Barrow, Jackson, and Madison classified as high; Oconee and Oglethorpe classified as medium; and Tift County continues to fluctuate between medium and high.

For areas designated as having a high COVID-19 community level, the CDC recommends the following:

  • Wear a face covering indoors in public

  • Stay up to date on vaccination

  • Get tested if you have symptoms (strongly encourage you stay home if you are ill)

  • People at high risk for severe illness should check with personal physician for additional precautions

With this in mind – we strongly encourage wearing of face coverings in CVM facilities regardless of vaccination status, and should continue to do so until community levels drop.”

 

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We hope you enjoy this educational event as much as we do! See you soon!
