From August 7-12, 2022, members of the GBADs programme attended the 16th International Symposium of Veterinary Epidemiology and Economics (ISVEE), in Halifax, Canada, to share and discuss the current work and progress of the GBADs programme with fellow leading Animal Health scientists.
During the conference, GBADs had their own Special Session taking place on Thursday 11th August, 10am-12pm ADT. We had numerous presentations from each theme and partners discussing what GBADs is trying to do and linking it to each theme. We then closed our session with Amy Hagerman, Oklahoma State University, presenting key points from our recent Validation. With great numbers attending, it was a positive experience that we were happy to share with the members of the conference in person.
We are looking forward to the next ISVEE, taking place in Sydney 2024. Thank you to all of our presenters!
