Saving Animals While Saving Humans

PawsUp

Many medical facilities in the US are finding alternatives to using live animals for research.

Many medical facilities in the U.S. are finding alternatives to using live animals for research.

Paws Up!
To the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences for no longer using live animals in their undergraduate medical curriculum.

According to a recent news article, “A U.S. military medical school in Bethesda says it no longer uses live animals in its training programs, starting with this school year.”

With so many alternatives to animal testing, we applaud all medical organizations and research facilities for phasing out testing on animals. However, some medical schools still use animals in their classrooms.

Take Action: Write a note of thanks to the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences.
