CAVEPM 2020 ~ Saskatoon, SK

June 2 @ 8:00 am - June 3 @ 5:00 pm

Canadian Association of Veterinary Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine Annual Conference

June 2-3, 2020

From the “epi-centre” of data gathering to “epic” dissemination

In the face of emerging diseases, outbreaks of known diseases and projected causal relationships, the story of who, what, when and where is often told first without data. Surveillance data provides the evidence base needed to inform action.

Two full days of oral and poster presentations will include presentations from invited speakers as outlined on the preliminary agenda:
