Joe Pagan, Ph.D., founder and president of Kentucky Equine Research (KER), is scheduled to speak at a special symposium being held in conjunction with the 2011 American Endurance Ride Conference (AERC) National Convention, March 3-4, Reno, Nevada.
The symposium, titled "Acid-Base and Body Fluid Management in the Endurance Horse," features several researchers and key figures in the sport-horse industry. On the morning of March 3, Pagan will give a presentation, "Oral Electrolyte Absorption and Distribution in the Body." He will then participate in a discussion and Q-and-A later in the day.
