SPEAKER BIO: Dr. Fernanda C. Camargo, is and Associate Professor and the Horse Extension Professor for the University of Kentucky.

After receiving her veterinary medicine degree from the State University of Londrina, Brazil, Dr. Camargo followed her passion for horses to Lexington in 2001. She completed a Ph.D. in equine pharmacology and toxicology at the University of Kentucky, and soon thereafter became their Equine Extension Professor.
