Do you or your institution have questions for the USDA about compliance with the federal Animal Welfare Act? Then you've come to the right place. NABR has organized a one-of-a-kind opportunity to meet the new Deputy Administrator for Animal Care at USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) on Tuesday, May 3 during NABR’s next webinar. She will be answering your questions live from NABR headquarters in Washington, DC at this special event. Space is going very quickly so please register ASAP.
As you probably already know, APHIS Administrator Kevin Shea announced in February that with the retirement of Dr. Chester Gipson, Bernadette Juarez was named as the new head of Animal Care. During this NABR-exclusive webinar, Ms. Juarez will present her vision for Animal Care, answer your questions, and discuss the future of the USDA division responsible for the regular inspection of your facilities. If you'd like to submit a question for Ms. Juarez to answer during the webinar, please send it to email@example.com.
Ms. Juarez is an attorney with extensive experience in investigating violations and enforcing the Animal Welfare Act (AWA). As Director of APHIS' Investigative and Enforcement Services (IES) she led investigations into suspected violations. During her tenure in the USDA's Office of General Counsel, she represented APHIS in numerous enforcement proceedings. Register today so you don't miss this opportunity.
All questions must be submitted in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org and will remain anonymous. Questions will be reviewed and formatted to prevent duplication.
Space is limited for this webinar and will fill quickly, so please register ASAP!
