IowaBio and Bio Nebraska Announce Virtual Animal Health in the Heartland Symposium

DES MOINES, Iowa and OMAHA, Neb. (June 10, 2020)– Iowa Biotechnology Association (IowaBio) and Bio Nebraska announced today that their Animal Health in the Heartland symposium will be hosted virtually on Wed., Aug. 18 and Thurs., Aug. 19. The symposium will be held via a Zoom format that will allow attendees to visit Tracks featuring presentations that support the symposium’s focus on whole animal health.

“To ensure the health and safety of our attendees during this time, we are grateful to have the opportunity to host our symposium completely virtually,” said Jessica Hyland, executive director of IowaBio. “While we may not be able to meet in person, the virtual format allowed us to add even more great presenters to our speaker lineup than we have in years past, allowing greater depth to the topic of whole animal health.”  

Animal Health in the Heartland Presentation Tracks:
  • Vaccines: Collaborative Development, Manufacturing Strategies and Effective Uses
  • Technology on Today’s Smart Farm
  • Advancements in Probiotics and Animal Feed
  • Overcoming Challenges: Regulatory Pathways, Facing Pandemics, and Making Rapid Decisions

Presentation Tracks will be available each morning and attendees can attend presentations from a single track or pick and choose between the various presentation options. In the afternoon of each day, attendees will be invited back to virtually meet with presenters, where they can pose questions and continue discussions of the presentation topics.

“There are extremely important and timely conversations happening in the animal health industry today and we are proud to be working with IowaBio to bring those conversations together in a two-day, virtual event,” said Rob Owen, executive director of Bio Nebraska. “We have included in our line-up a list of exceptional presenters who represent the definition of ‘whole animal health’.”
