Noted Gastroenterologist to Deliver Convention State-of-the-Art Lecture

Alfred M. Merritt II, AB, DVM, MS, will present the Frank J. Milne State-of-the-Art Lecture at the AAEP’s 49th Annual Convention in New Orleans, La., November 21-25, 2003. Merritt’s presentation will highlight advances made over the last 40 years in our understanding of the function and diseases of the equine stomach, with particular emphasis on Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS).

Merritt received his degree in veterinary medicine from Cornell University in 1963, and has been the Appleton Endowed Professor in Equine Studies at the University of Florida since 1998. His primary area of research is comparative gastrointestinal physiology and pathophysiology. He has received numerous awards, such as the Carl J. Norden Distinguished Teacher Award in 1997 and a Professorial Excellence Award from the University of Florida in 1998. Dr. Merritt has also published many articles in research journals and numerous chapters in veterinary textbooks, the majority of which have concerned equine gastroenterology.

The Frank J. Milne lecture debuted at the 1997 convention in Phoenix, AZ, and will be brought to you this year by the AAEP Foundation, Inc. Named for AAEP past president and distinguished life member Frank J. Milne, the lecture series focuses on subjects and techniques considered “state of the art” by the equine veterinary profession.
