Don’t Miss Out on RACE Continuing Education Credits! The Laboratory Animal Sciences Online Conference Starts This Week.


wt_and_tk_rat_photoResponsible laboratory animal care is a critical component of any research project. Join LabRoots and a variety of experts from academia, government, and industry to ensure a safe and healthy environment for animals. This year’s theme of advances and challenges in the field will educate attendees on new management, enrichment and procedural techniques that will surely prove invaluable.
The 2017 conference is approved by the American Association of Veterinary State Boards for Continuing Education for veterinarians and veterinary technicians to receive RACE CE credits, and also meets AALAS and CALAS continuing education criteria.
