The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) salutes Dr. Ginger Reagan, the April honoree of the Good Works for Horses Campaign, for both her efforts generating youth interest in horse health and responding to the plight of horses affected by historic flooding from Hurricane Florence. Good Works for Horses honors AAEP-member practitioners who perform volunteer service to benefit horses and the equine community. Horse owners and veterinary professionals are encouraged to nominate AAEP members for this monthly recognition.
Thirty-six veterinary students preparing for careers in equine medicine have received a combined $54,000 in financial support through the 2019 Winner’s Circle Scholarship Program, co-sponsored by the American Association of Equine Practitioners’ (AAEP) Foundation, Platinum Performance and The Race For Education.
