University of Florida Equine Reproduction Specialist Selected as 2016 AAEP Vice President 

The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) has named Margo Macpherson, DVM, MS, DACT, professor of equine reproduction at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, as its 2016 vice president. She will be installed as vice president during the Dec. 8 President’s Luncheon at the 61st Annual Convention in Las Vegas, Nev., and will assume the role of AAEP president in 2018.

Dr. Macpherson serves as tenured professor at the University of Florida CVM, where she recently stepped down as chief of the reproduction service after eight years. Prior to joining the faculty, she worked as a private practitioner in central Kentucky and served as a lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania. She received her veterinary degree from Michigan State University in 1990 and a master’s degree from Texas A&M University in 1994.

Dr. Macpherson considers herself to be a clinician scientist with a strong interest in both clinical medicine and veterinary research. She has devoted a significant portion of her professional career to unraveling the complexities of equine placentitis. Work from her laboratory has helped direct treatment choices for mares with placentitis by providing information about efficacy of commonly used antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory treatments.

Dr. Macpherson is a longstanding member of the AAEP’s Educational Programs Committee, where she presently contributes to student programming. She previously served on the association’s board of directors from 2011-2014; as Reproduction anchor for the Kester News Hour at the AAEP Annual Convention from 2006-2010; and on the Nominating and Reproduction committees. In addition, she served as president of the American College of Theriogenologists in 2005.

The American Association of Equine Practitioners, headquartered in Lexington, Ky., was founded in 1954 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the health and welfare of the horse. Currently, AAEP reaches more than 5 million horse owners through its over 9,000 members worldwide and is actively involved in ethics issues, practice management, research and continuing education in the equine veterinary profession and horse industry.
