Registration is Open for NABR’s April Webinar!

When you received the news earlier this month that the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) removed from its website “inspection reports, regulatory correspondence, research facility annual reports, and enforcement records,” you most likely and understandably had a few questions. What happened? Why? How does this impact me and my institution? What now?

Although some of the data is back online, USDA’s action will certainly impact registered research facilities and licensed dealers who supply animals to research facilities. Join NABR on Tuesday, April 11 for our next exclusive webinar that will examine the current status of the database and how it may affect your institution and animal rights activity. NABR’s staff will share expert analysis including examples of how NABR uses information in the database to provide advice and support to institutions like yours. You will get an in-depth look at the USDA’s database, the information contained, and learn how you can make sense of the tremendous amount of data contained within.

Due to its timely nature, this webinar is expected to fill up fast — reserve your spot and register today!
