USDA-APHIS Niche Stakeholder Working Group Emergency Preparedness and Response Training Opportunity

Drs. Sierra Burrell and Keren Rozensher, Veterinary Medical Officers with Veterinary Services, will be presenting on one of the 2017 Surveillance, Preparedness, and Response Services (SPRS) Priority Projects: The Niche Stakeholder Working Group (NSWG). The NSWG is a group tasked with reaching out to niche stakeholders, with whom APHIS has not traditionally been closely involved in the past, and work with them on biosecurity, animal disease control, and other APHIS concerns. Some examples of these niche producers include, but are far from limited to, pastured poultry producers, pastured pork, alternative fiber-producing species, and heritage livestock breeders. This webinar will introduce the NSWG and outline the work they’ve done in FY17, and the work they plan to do in the future with the help of APHIS across the country.

This webinar is open to APHIS personnel and external stakeholders
