Honey Bee Veterinary Consortium Conference

Honey Bee Veterinary Consortium Conference

Honey Bee Veterinary Consortium LogoThe Honey Bee Veterinary Consortium was formed following the advent of the VFD for honey bees. This conference will focus on what large scale or hobbyist beekeepers need, especially with regards to the VFD and disease management. Our mission is to educate veterinarians, novice and experienced apiarists on how to integrate veterinary care into beekeeping.

As a result of the Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) issuance of the final rule, many veterinarians have reason to be concerned about apiculture (beekeeping) and honey bee veterinary medicine. Honey bees now fall into veterinarians’ purview owing to the VFD rule and changes in FDA policy on medically important antimicrobials and you may be called on to treat them.

This on demand virtual conference will cover topics for the novice as well as the master beekeeper. Registration includes access until December 31, 2021 and downloadable/printable notes. This program has been approved for 18 hours of continuing education credit in jurisdictions that recognize RACE approval..

The conference will be held virtually and is hosted by the NC State University College of Veterinary Medicine.
