NAS to hold two webinars on December 2nd



The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will host two webinars open to the public at 11:00AM and 6:00PM ET on Monday December 2nd. The NAS committee will hear from two invited speakers as part of their task to look at the best and most objective ways to conduct inspections at horse shows.  

The first speaker will be Dr. Pia Haubro Andersen of The Swedish Agricultural University in a webinar titled “Webinar on Equine Pain Face,” followed by Dr. Kevin Haussler of Colorado State University and Dr. Todd Behre from USDA in a webinar titled “Webinar on Algometry for Assessing Pain in Tennessee Walking Horses.”

The NAS has yet to inform the public of any additions or replacements to the original committee they announced earlier. The committee currently consists of Dr. Jerry Black, chair, Dr. Bart Sutherland, Dr. Tracy Turner, Dr. Pamela Ginn, Dr. Sarah le Jeune, Dr. Susan White and Robin Foster.
