Animal disease reports to be released at July 18 news conference at AVMA convention

Two new reports from the National Academies' National Research Council examine how a shortage of veterinarians in public-health and research positions, along with a fragmented animal-health system, are hampering the country's ability to counter new and emerging animal diseases such as mad cow disease and avian influenza, as well as the threat of bioterrorism. ANIMAL HEALTH AT THE CROSSROADS: PREVENTING, DETECTING, AND DIAGNOSING ANIMAL DISEASES looks at how to better coordinate the work of the dozens of agencies, university laboratories, and private companies responsible for animal health in the United States. CRITICAL NEEDS FOR RESEARCH IN VETERINARY SCIENCE, proposes a research agenda to confront emerging animal diseases and recommends steps veterinary schools should take to persuade more students to pursue research careers. Both reports will be released at a news conference at the American Veterinary Medical Association annual convention in Minneapolis.

Monday, July 18, at 1:30 p.m. CDT in Director's Row Two at the Hilton Minneapolis, 1001 Marquette Ave. For press credentials to attend the convention, including this news conference, contact Sharon Curtis Granskog, assistant director, media relations, AVMA, at sgranskog@avma.org. Advance copies of the reports will be available to reporters only beginning at 8:30 a.m. CDT on July 18. THE REPORTS ARE EMBARGOED AND NOT FOR PUBLIC RELEASE BEFORE 1:30 P.M. CDT ON JULY 18. To obtain copies, contact the National Academies' Office of News and Public Information; tel. 202-334-2138 or e-mail news@nas.edu.
