Hear from the real life rescuers from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in this in-depth day and a half conference on disaster preparedness and management as it relates to veterinarians, veterinary practices and local animal care. We'll discuss your legal obligations as well as hands-on information for handling a large scale disaster. The weekend will include Continental Breakfasts on both days, mid-morning refreshments, Saturday lunch and mid-afternoon refreshments. We hope to offer an informal hour/ cash bar on Saturday after the last presentation for socializing and asking more in-depth questions, one-on-one with our speakers.
