David M. Sherman, DVM, MS, Dipl. ACVIM, will discuss his ongoing work in Afghanistan at a presentation at the American Veterinary Medical Assn. convention in New Orleans this month.

His lecture, “Providing Animal Health Care in Afghanistan,” will be held at 10 a.m. July 19 in Auditorium B at the convention center.

The talk is based on his work in Afghanistan to set up a community-based veterinary network and is part of the conference's "One Medicine" subsection.

Dr. Sherman is the author of “Tending Animals in the Global Village” (Blackwell, 2002), in which, according to Amazon.com, he discusses global trends that affect how the veterinary profession serves society and how veterinary professionals define their roles. 

“This is an agrarian culture that depends on livestock for its existence,” says Sherman about his work in Afghanistan. He is a Massachusetts veterinarian and an international expert on goat health.

As much as 70 percent of the Afghan population earns a living from animals, at least in part.

Sherman and his work will be profiled in the August issue of Veterinary Practice News.
