Advancing research and management of equine endocrinology disorders

Leading clinicians and researchers in equine endocrinology now have a forum to share their collective knowledge of the science related to the discipline and chart a course for the future.

The Equine Endocrinology Summit is an annual conference that brings together the luminaries in the field, with organization provided by Nicholas Frank, DVM, PhD, Dipl. ACVIM, Professor of Large Animal Internal Medicine and Chair, Department of Clinical Sciences, Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine.
