Fourth Annual ACVD Dermatology Outreach Program

The American College of Veterinary Dermatology, a Founding Member Organization of WAVD, recently conducted its Fourth Annual ACVD Dermatology Outreach Program in Medora, North Dakota in the United States. ACVD Diplomates, Drs. Linda Messinger and Paul Bloom, provided continuing education in veterinary dermatology to 105 general practitioners.

The objective of the program is to provide annual seminars given by ACVD Boarded Dermatologists to veterinarians in underserved areas of the United States at no charge to improve their knowledge and understanding of basic dermatology principles. Sponsorship for this event was provided by Bayer HealthCare Animal Health and Idexx Laboratories. Previous programs were presented in Missoula, Montana in 2012, Burlington, Vermont in 2013 and Post Falls, Idaho in 2014. WAVD congratulates the ACVD on its dedication to the Worldwide Advancement of Veterinary Dermatology through this and other educational initiatives.
