International Laminitis Conference Joins Phelps Media Group, Inc. International as Newest Equine Industry Client

WELLINGTON, FL - October 10, 2008 - Phelps Media Group Inc., International, a premiere equine public relations firm based in Wellington, Florida, is pleased to announce that the International Laminitis Conference has joined the firm's roster of equine industry clients.

The goals of the International Laminitis Conference (ILC) are the better understanding, prevention, and treatment of laminitis and other diseases of the equine foot.

Next year, the ILC will present its 5th International Equine Conference on Laminitis and Diseases of the Foot on November 6-8, 2009, at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach, FL.

Coming up next month, ILC, in partnership with Steinbeck Country Equine Clinic and Drs. Tim Eastman and Nora Grenager, will present a one-day Laminitis West Seminar on November 1, 2008, at the Monterey Conference Center in Monterey, CA.

James A. Orsini, DVM, DACVS, is the Director of the International Laminitis Conference. Dr. Orsini is a faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania and Associate Professor of Surgery in the School of Veterinary Medicine.

"We have had four conferences to date and each one draws attendees from across the United States and internationally," explained Dr. Orsini. "Our goal is to coordinate the efforts of many in the field of Veterinary Medicine and supporting professions to unlock the mystery of laminitis and other equine foot problems. The conference is the cornerstone and provides the most current educational and research information on equine foot problems."

Each year Dr. Orsini works with an organizing committee composed of the world's experts and visionaries on laminitis to create an innovative, educational, and entertaining program for conference attendees. The program is geared for equine veterinarians, farriers, owners, managers, trainers, breeders, and horse enthusiasts. The format includes scientific and practical tracks with topical sessions followed by small group practical workshops providing information that attendees can incorporate into their daily routines. At the 2007 conference, 35 presenters comprised of renowned veterinarians, farriers, and research doctors from 15 states and four foreign nations led the program sessions.

The conference also features topnotch exhibitors presenting valuable products and services for attendees. More than 20 exhibitors were featured at the 2007 conference, including industry leaders Auburn Laboratories, Inc., Centurion Systems, Inc., Life Data Labs, Inc., Universal Medical Systems, and Schering-Plough.

Generous sponsors, both corporate and individuals, support the conference, including major manufacturers of equine health products such as Merial, Purina Mills, LLC, Nutramax Laboratories, Inc., and Pfizer, Inc.

At the conference, the many trailblazers, researchers, owners, and caregivers who continually advance the understanding of laminitis are recognized through the presentation of five prestigious awards including the Pfizer Scientific Award for outstanding research and scientific achievement and the Lifetime Achievement Award for the veterinarian or farrier who has dedicated his or her career to treating horses with laminitis.

Dr. Orsini encourages equine professionals and enthusiasts from all facets of the horse world to attend the 2009 International Conference on Laminitis and Diseases of the Foot in Florida. "The conference provides something for everyone and everyone is encouraged to attend," said Dr. Orsini. "We want to enlist the efforts of as many of the supporters of the equine industry who train, own, show, breed or just simply love horses in our vision of conquering laminitis!"
