The AVMA Animal Welfare Division is launching a quarterly electronic newsletter, Animal Welfare Focus, to help keep AVMA members up to date on animal welfare-related topics and activities and the AVMA's science-based advocacy.

Each issue of the newsletter will include an article on an animal welfare topic, with links to recent scientific research and resources on the subject; an update on the activities of the AVMA Animal Welfare Committee and AVMA Animal Welfare Division; news about state, national, and international legislative and regulatory initiatives in the area of animal welfare; and information about recent publications and upcoming meetings relevant to animal welfare.

Members of the AVMA may subscribe to Animal Welfare Focus and other electronic newsletters by visiting www.avma.org and clicking on "Newsletters" in the upper-right hand portion of the page.
