Pre-conference Workshops

The Organizing and Program Committees for the 8th  ISAAH are pleased to provide to our attendees 5 opportunities to participate in Pre-Conference Workshops on a range of applied aquatic animal health subjects (see below): Diagnostic Test Evaluations, Publishing Piscatorial Papers, Clinical Pathology, Shellfish Necropsy and Virtual Microscopy.

These workshops will be hosted, at no charge, by the Atlantic Veterinary College (AVC) at the University of Prince Edward Island on Sunday September 2, 2018.  Four of the workshops will be RACE Approved for Continuing Education Credits for Veterinarians, Veterinary Nurses and Veterinary Technologist.  As there will be no charge for these workshops, each has been assigned a limited number of participants  and these openings will be offered on a first come first serve basis at the time of conference registration.

The AVC has graciously agreed to provide space for the workshops as well as refreshment to the attendees.   Bus transportation to the workshop from the ISAAH Convention Center will be provided to those needing transportation.  All attendees must register in advance for the ISAAH to be able to participate in any of the workshop.  Attendee registration packets will be distributed at the AVC during the workshop activities.  Descriptions of each workshop and workshop leaders are listed below.
