Join us for this special session where attendees can speak with and ask questions of representatives from the OLAW and USDA, APHIS, Animal Care. OLAW provides guidance and interpretation of the PHS Policy on Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals, supports educational programs, and monitors compliance with the PHS Policy by assured institutions and PHS funding components to ensure the humane care and use of animals in PHS-supported research, testing, and training. And, for more than 40 years, Congress has entrusted APHIS with the stewardship of animals covered under the Animal Welfare and Horse Protection Acts. APHIS continues to uphold that trust, giving protection to millions of animals nationwide, and provides leadership for determining standards of humane care and treatment of animals, implements those standards, and achieves compliance through inspection, education, cooperative efforts, and enforcement. This session will provide an opportunity for attendees to:
