The mission of the American Heartworm Society is to further the scientific progress in the study of heartworm disease, and to encourage and promote effective procedures for heartworm diagnosis, treatment and prevention, in order to contribute to a better understanding of this debilitating disease. The Society strongly encourages, funds, and supports heartworm research by awarding grants to scientists, and providing a forum for the presentation of heartworm related research at national and regional seminars. The Society also disseminates disease related information to the veterinary community through journal publications, newsletters and on the American Heartworm Society’s comprehensive website.
