We are frequently engaged in crafting position statements, whitepapers, point-counterpoint comparisons and scientific rebuttals to misinformation that is commonly found in the printed media of today.

The Drug and Therapeutics committee is to make its membership aware of any new information, proposal, or research that may impact the present of future availability of drugs intended to prevent, treat, or control diseases of poultry.
