With increased travel for both people and animals, disease challenges are greater than ever.

It’s not until you get a group of animal health professionals together that you realize how many issues they deal with on a daily basis. The U.S. Animal Health Association USAHA) provides such a forum, bringing together animal health leaders from government, private practice and industry who work alongside livestock producers and human health representatives. The problems are many and varied, but for 122 years, solutions have been crafted with collaboration and compromise through USAHA.

Members of 30 different committees convene throughout the seven-day annual meeting, where they provide updates, discuss emerging diseases and consider resolutions.
