The AVMF is seeking volunteer veterinarians, technicians, students, and AVMF supporters in each city on the exhibit’s tour to help us:
Inform the public about our Ambassador for Animals Program and encourage membership.
Educate the public about the exhibit and the veterinary field.
Promote the exhibit to family, friends, and colleagues and encourage attendance.
This is a fun and exciting opportunity for you to share your passion for veterinary medicine with the community! Volunteers will be scheduled for two-hour shifts at the exhibit. All volunteers will be provided with t-shirts and we ask that veterinarian volunteers wear their lab coats.
Anyone interested in volunteering or additional information should contact Laura Roth at AVMF (847) 285-6689 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The award is named in honor of William Russell and Rex Burch, the scientists who formulated the Three Rs approach of replacement, reduction, and refinement. The Award is a means of recognizing the important role that scientists play in limiting the use and suffering of animals in laboratories.

Invitation to Support the talent and curiosity of the AJAS at AAAS in Chicago.
FROM: (NAAS, representing the 47 Geographical AAAS Affiliated Academies of Science )
89 Girls and 68 Boys that are the chosen 2014 Delegates of The American Junior Academy of Science (AJAS) will present their research in poster sessions at the AAAS meetings in Chicago on Feb. 14th. We would like your members that are attending to encourage these young STEM researchers to continue in STEM careers by visiting them at their posters. We encourage you to celebrate their curiosity more than just the discipline area of the research. We encourage diversity in both culture and subject matter, and would hope your members would do the same.
