67th Annual Meeting of the Wildlife Disease Association
This post is long overdue! Back at the beginning of August, I attended the 67th Annual Meeting of the Wildlife Disease Association that was held in St. Augustine Florida. It’s one of my favorite meetings and it was in one of my favorite places, so I really couldn’t pass up the opportunity to attend.
The meeting was a great success and there were lots of interesting and cutting edge research presented. I was honored to be the Moderator for both sessions that covered emerging diseases and conservation of herpetofauna. I really enjoyed the talks during this session and learned a whole lot!

I did represent the lab while I was there as well. I presented a poster entitled ‘Ranavirus Distributions in the Herpetofauna of The USA: Examining the Utility of Databases and the Literature’ which a student, Leigha Henson, and two other faculty, Dr. Nicole Vanderbush and Dr. Joyce Klaus, contributed to.
