The AMI Foundation will host a one-day briefing to provide up-to-date information about foot and mouth on June 14, 2001, at the Washington Hilton & Towers in Washington, DC.
The Foundation is holding
the briefing in response to questions about
government and industry efforts to keep FMD
from spreading to the United States.
questions still surround foot and mouth disease
and U.S. efforts to prevent it from arriving on
our shores and what would happen if a confirmed
case was diagnosed in the U.S.," AMIF President
James H. Hodges said. “We hope to provide
useful information from key industry and
government officials who are on the frontlines
of disease prevention, surveillance, diagnosis
and emergency preparedness.”
briefing will help those in the livestock
marketing chain understand what the impact of
the disease might be on their operations and
how to lessen any adverse effects should the
disease be diagnosed in our herds.
Foundation has brought together officials from
various departments in APHIS as well as an
industry representative to present the
information about the disease. To view the
