Veterinary CE: Equine Infectious Diseases

Monday, June 28, 2021

The College of Veterinary Medicine announces a new online course for veterinary professionals. Adapted from a previously recorded webinar held in May 2021, participants will explore infectious diseases, review various approaches taken when presented with an outbreak, examine prevention tactics and treatment strategies, and review equine sample collection methods for diagnostic testing. After watching the recorded presentation from Lyndi Gilliam, participants will complete a final assessment.

About the Presenter

Lyndi Gilliam, DVM, PhD, DACVIM, is an associate professor. She was raised in Wyoming and has shown horses her whole life, most recently working cow horses, which is what brought her to Oklahoma. Once she was here, she just couldn't leave, so she stayed for her undergrad and DVM degrees at OSU. Gilliam went into a mixed animal private practice in Dalhart, Texas for two years before returning to OSU for her residency and Ph.D. She completed her residency and became board certified in Large Animal Internal Medicine in 2006. In 2012, Gilliam completed her Ph.D. in Veterinary Biomedical Sciences studying the effects of rattlesnake venom on the horse's heart. Her current research includes envenomation and methods to treat it, equine herpes virus, Corynebacterium pseudo tb / Pigeon Fever, and analgesic protocols for chronic pain in the horse.
