Location: Virtual Symposium - Link will be provided in advance to registered participants.
This virtual mini-symposium examines emerging issues in animal welfare following the COVID-19 pandemic. The program will explore public perceptions of companion animal welfare, emerging health and welfare challenges for agricultural animals and their implications for human health and well-being and sustainable animal agriculture.
The program is intended to be useful for scientists, students, veterinarians, animal producers, various animal industry personnel, legislators, and interested members of the general public. CAWS is increasingly focused on ensuring equitable access to animal welfare education and outreach, as well as inclusion of diverse audiences with interest in the subject matter. Sponsorships enable us to add to the training of students, offer the program at low or no-cost to those with economic or logistical constraints who might otherwise be unable to benefit from our programs, and facilitate networking and partnerships related to animal welfare science.
