American Society of Laboratory Animal Practitioners—Celebrating 50 Years of Advocacy, Education, and Collaboration

When: Wednesday, November 2, 2016, 2:45-5:00 PM 

Where: Ballroom A Charlotte Convention Center

This seminar will celebrate ASLAP’s 50 year history and simultaneously look toward the future by examining three of the most pressing issues confronting laboratory animal veterinarians as identified in a recent membership survey, including veterinary student debt, regulatory burden, and compassion fatigue.  Presenters, including Drs. Stacy Pritt, Joseph Thulin, and Matthew Rosenbaum, will provide a framework for understanding the contemporary relevance of each topic and suggest practical management strategies.  All AALAS attendees, including animal program directors, veterinarians, and IACUC professionals would benefit from this relevant and interactive discussion.
