Enteric Diseases Committee

This committee welcomes anyone interested in enteric diseases of poultry to become members and participate fully. We seek to collectively work on enteric issues of economic importance to the Poultry industry. This includes bacterial, viral and coccidial diseases that are well researched and documented and as well as emerging issues. The committee meets at the annual AAAP / AVMA meetings and as needed basis. We explore and recommend symposia and other educational tools that we think will be beneficial to the AAAP membership at large.
