November 30, 1999

Internationally recognized equine researchers and industry leaders will be in Washington County soon via Web conferencing, the University of Maryland Extension Service said.

The Maryland Horse Health and Disease Prevention Seminar will be held at Laurel Racetrack starting at 2 p.m. Thursday, June 8, and broadcast to four satellite locations in the state using Centra Web Conferencing technologies.

These include the Western Maryland Research and Education Center near Keedysville.

Topics will include: identifying illness in horses; controlling infectious diseases; myths and facts about equine vaccinations; and disease prevention measures.

"Veterinarians, trainers, horse breeders, horse owners, and anyone involved within Maryland's equine industry should not miss this opportunity to learn about these important topics," the Extension Service said.

All who attend will receive conference proceedings, dinner, "and the opportunity to ask questions of all of our experts," the agency said.
