The Conference of Research Workers in Animal Diseases (CRWAD) was established in 1920. CRWAD is a non–profit organization and has been so since its origin.
The sole purpose of CRWAD is to discuss and disseminate the most current research advances in animal diseases.
There is an annual meeting each December where research scientists from around the world present their recent research in oral or poster presentation formats. The meeting averages 500 in attendance, and 325 presentations.
