2023 Equine Summit

Please see below for important details regarding this year's Equine Summit event on August 19th, 2023 at the UGA Veterinary Teaching Hospital.

EVENT DETAILS

Dear Equine Summit Attendee, 

 

The University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine student chapter of the AAEP is so excited to have you back at this year's Equine Summit after such a successful event last year!  

 

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 will be posted in the following month concerning presentation speakers and dry labs.

  • 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 catering from "G Brand BBQ". 

  • 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! 

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!

-Your UGA scAAEP Officers

GO DAWGS!!! (and cats, birds, cows, pigs, horses, etc…)
