The AVMA has a new look and a new outlook. On July 11 at the AVMA Annual Convention in Boston, the Association debuted a modern logo and other elements of a new brand. The green-and-blue logo incorporates the veterinary version of the Aesculapian staff and the tag line: “Our Passion. Our Profession.” Leaders of the AVMA said the brand combines a fresh look with a member-centric focus.


The Government Accountability Office concludes the departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services likely lack enough veterinarians to effectively respond to outbreaks of foot-and-mouth disease and similar animal health emergencies.


Veterinarian. Physician. Pilot. Veteran. Dr. Ralph Abraham already had an impressive resume before voters in Louisiana’s 5th district elected him to Congress. He believes his broad range of experiences will serve him well in the House of Representatives, where he is a member of the committees on Agriculture and Veterans’ Affairs.


The credits for the photos that accompanied the July 15 news story “SCAVMAs in Ariz., Tenn. receive charters” were transposed. Dr. Anna Reddish shot the photo at the Lincoln Memorial University College of Veterinary Medicine, and Dr. Caroline Cantner took the photo at the Midwestern University College of Veterinary Medicine.
