Drugs & Antimicrobials Committee

The Drugs and Antimicrobials committee of AAAP functions on the "frontlines" of the interface between the public's opinions and perceptions of the poultry industries and the realities our it's practices. 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. Our committee enjoys the position of being able to positively and accurately impact public perceptions by being a "go-to" source for the science supporting the world's most wide consumed source of animal protein . . . poultry.
