ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues related to the modified version of the Veterinary Public Health Workforce Expansion Act as amendment to the Higher Education Reauthorization Bill passed by the U.S. Senate. Physician Michael Blackwell was disappointed with the funding tied to the legislation because he believed it cannot address the shortage of veterinarians. The legislation was designed to educate veterinarians for positions in public health and research toward food safety.
