promotes the WEVA meeting in Cluj

iancuThe prestigeous The Horse magazine promotes the WEVA meeting in Cluj. The meeting was hosted by USAMV and was organised by AVER, under the presidency of professor Iancu Morar.


”The World Equine Veterinary Association (WEVA) promotes the health and welfare of horses and other equids through the support and provision of high-quality continuing education for veterinarians (and, sometimes, others working in the many and varied equine industries) in less economically developed countries.


Continuing education is provided by WEVA board members, who work without pay, and other equine veterinarians sponsored by WEVA or other organizations/individuals interested in philanthropy. The association aims to hold numerous intermediate meetings in various parts of the world annually; additionally, WEVA holds a biennial congress in a country that has successfully made its case for the opportunities that such an equine veterinary continuing education festival would bring to its region”, says


Thus far in 2016, board members of WEVA have spoken at four intermediate meetings around the world:

February 2016—Heilan, China Chris Riggs, BVSc, PhD, DEO, Dipl. ECVS, MRCVS (WEVA board member and head veterinarian at the Hong Kong Jockey Club), and I lectured and gave ultrasonography wet labs, respectively, at the first international equine summit sponsored predominantly by Oculus and Heilan.

March 2016—Beijing, China Henry Tremaine, BVetMed, MPhil (WEVA board member), Riggs, and I lectured on surgery, dentistry, lameness, poor performance, and cardiac issues in horses at the First China Horse Industry Association-licensed equine veterinary continuing education course.
