The Frank J. Milne Lecture will be given by Noah Cohen, VMD, PhD, Dipl. ACVIM, director of the Equine Infectious Disease Laboratory at Texas A&M University. The lecture will take place Nov. 20, during the AAEP 57th annual convention in San Antonio.
Dr. Cohen, an expert in equine infectious disease, epidemiology and internal medicine, will tell practitioners how to more effectively apply clinical research to day-to-day practice.
Cohen has presented numerous lectures nationally and internationally on applying principles of epidemiology, the branch of medical science concerned with the occurrence, transmission and control of diseases to specific areas of equine practice–including racing injuries, gastrointestinal disease, evidence-based medicine and infectious disease. He published more than 200 peer-reviewed scientific publications and 16 book chapters. His advisory roles include serving on the boards for the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation, the Morris Animal Foundation and USA Equestrian.
Cohen received the Pfizer Award for Excellence in Research in 2001, the Texas Veterinary Medical Association's Research Award in 2002 and the Intervet/Schering Plough/World Equine Veterinary Association Applied Equine Research Award in 2008. He delivered the John Hickman Memorial Lecture at the British Equine Veterinary Association's Congress in 2002. He is an honorary diplomate of the American Society of Veterinary Epidemiology.
The Frank J. Milne Lecture is named for American Association Equine Practitioners’ past president.
