Symposium to focus on poultry veterinarian’s role in shaping public policy, government regulations, consumer perceptions

Today’s poultry veterinarians are being asked to do more than ensure flock health and welfare.  They’re also lending their expertise to public policy discussions that steer government regulations and consumer perceptions.

With these mounting responsibilities in mind, the American Association of Avian Pathologists (AAAP) is hosting a symposium, “Poultry and Policy, A Melee of Science, Agriculture and Politics,” at its 2017 conference in Indianapolis, July 21-25. The half-day session will be held on Saturday, July 22, beginning at 7:30 am and is open to all registered members.

The symposium includes a presentation by U.S. House Representative Kurt Shrader, D-Oregon, who received his veterinary degree from the University of Illinois in 1977.  “If American agriculture is to remain the standard bearer of how agriculture should benefit a society, it must present itself in a better light to the American public,” Schrader, a former member of the House Agriculture Committee, says on his website.

Other speakers include Anna O’Brien, DVM, veterinary medical officer, FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine; Ashley Peterson, PhD, vice president of science and technology, National Chicken Council; Mark Lutschaunig, VMD, director, government relations division, AVMA; Nathaniel Tablante, DVM, and Lloyd Keck, DVM, AVMA Congressional Fellows; and other key opinion leaders from the poultry industry.

“This is a great opportunity for poultry veterinarians to build on their expertise and become advocates for our industry,” says Suzanne Dougherty, DVM, executive vice president, AAAP.

Each year the AAAP’s annual conference attracts poultry-health professions from more than 25 countries. For more information, visit aaap.info or call (US) 904-425-5735.

The American Association of Avian Pathologists is an international association whose mission is to promote scientific knowledge to enhance the health, well-being, and productivity of poultry to provide safe and abundant food for the world.
