An AAEP member since 1987, Dr. McInturff served on the association’s Equine Welfare Committee and Tennessee Walking Horse Task Force, participated in the AAEP Leadership Development Workshop in 2006 and is currently working to strengthen the Ambassador program as a member of the AAEP Foundation Committee.

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, the AAEP reaches more than 5 million horse owners through its nearly 10,000 members worldwide and is actively involved in ethics issues, practice management, research and continuing education in the equine veterinary profession and horse industry.
