Dr. Sandro Barbacini from SBS Italia recently presented at the World Equine Veterinary Association (WEVA) conference in Hyderabad, India, November 2nd-5th 2011. The exciting news is that Sandro has been elected to join the WEVA board, replacing Dr. Fernando Canonici as the representative for SIVE. Dr. Canonici has admirably represented Italian equine veterinarians for the last four years, he commented. "This turnover is an example of cohesion and Italian elegance. I wish Sandro a good job and I am certain he will represent us with active participation and professionalism."
WEVA has a central role in the equine veterinary world as far as the mission to bring advanced science education to countries where there is not easy access to training. In this sense the experience of SIVE is highly appreciated and contributes to the definition of guidelines for international education in the field of equine medicine.
