APV Workshop Updates


APV 5K Run/Walk T-Shirt Design Contest / “FUNd Run”

We are excited to announce that there will be a 5K Run/Walk held at this year’s Workshop in Denver. Proceeds from this race will benefit the APV Foundation. The race will be Friday morning, October 11, 2019 at 6:30 am. To celebrate this popular event, we are having another T-shirt design contest!

The T-shirt designs will be judged and winners selected by APV BOD and APV Foundation judges. First prize will be $50.00 and the winning design will appear on the FUNd Run T-shirt. Second prize will receive $25.00, and three honorable mentions will receive free race T-shirts.

The contest is open to APV members and their family members (including children). Design tips: keep your design simple for more impact. You may incorporate the race name (FUNd Run) in your design if you choose to. Designs will be printed in a single color on a colored T-shirt.

Please submit your design in the form of a .jpeg file or a .pdf file. Please send all submissions to Lorna Millen at aggiedoone@gmail.com with the subject line “APV design contest.”

Please direct any questions to Lorna Millen at lorna.millen@covance.com.

Deadline for submission is September 1, 2019. Winners will be announced September 8, 2019.

Case Reports, What’s Your Diagnosis, and Poster Submissions for the 47th Annual APV Workshop

The 47th annual APV Workshop will be held in Broomfield, CO, October 9-12, 2019. We are inviting submission of posters and clinical cases for presentation in either the case report or “What’s Your Diagnosis” format. These presentations of cases and clinical experiences are the backbone of the APV Workshop. We are looking for interesting and relevant clinical cases, research applications, new models, behavioral management strategies, and nonhuman primate psychological enrichment or welfare information.

Please consider whether your case would be suitable for the interactive “What’s Your Diagnosis” format. This is always popular with our attendees, and we regularly receive feedback requesting more of these types of presentations. If you have questions about presenting in this format, please contact Lorna Millen (lorna.millen@covance.com).

The deadline for case report and travel grant submissions is July 1, 2019. We have a tight timeline between receiving the presentations and finalizing the Workshop program for RACE credits. It is important that all the information requested be submitted by the deadline to ensure proper review and final selection. In the interest of fairness, we will consider only the complete requests submitted by the deadline using the following address:


We also ask that all applicants complete a common form with the following information:

  •  Title of the case report
  •  Author(s)
  •  Abstract of <300 words
  •  CV (2 pages or less) (needed for RACE accreditation)

Please consider the following guidelines when creating and delivering your case report and “What’s Your Diagnosis” presentations:

  •  Time limit is 15 minutes total for each presentation so aim for a 12 minute presentation (approximately 15 ppt slides) and allow3 minutes for questions.
  •  Adhere to the time limit to keep the Workshop on schedule.
  •  Practice your presentation to ensure you meet the 15 minute time limit.
  •  Introduce yourself to the moderator prior to the start of the session (Lorna Millen or Jennifer Lane). The moderator will introduce you prior to your presentation.
  •  Your presentation must be loaded in advance. Please get with the AV specialist or session moderator prior to your presentation time.
  •  When told by the moderator that your time is up, you must leave the podium, even if there are still audience members with questions (they can be addressed after the session or during the session breaks).

Send questions about case reports to Lorna Millen (lorna.millen@covance.com) or Jennifer Lane (jennifer.lane5@montana.edu).
