Scam Alert - Licensing boards being spoofed

AAVSB

Some AAVSB member licensing boards are reporting that their licensees are receiving phone calls from people claiming to be staff from the licensing board in an attempt to obtain sensitive license or personal information. The callers will often falsely claim that the licensee is under investigation or that their license is in danger of being suspended. The phone numbers that appear on the caller ID can sometimes appear authentic. This is a common fraud technique known as spoofing.

Up, up and but not away: DEA raises registration fees

FDA Law Blog

The DEA registration fee will increase from $731 for a 3-year registration to $888 effective on October 1, 2020. An interesting aspect of a federal or state administrative agency seeking appropriations or raising fees is its justification for doing so and the light it sheds on the priorities for fulfilling its mission. The Drug Enforcement Administration’s (“DEA’s”) recent increase of initial registration and renewal fees, through its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, (Registration and Reregistration Fees for Controlled Substance and List I Chemical Registrants, 85 Fed. Reg. 14,810 (Mar. 16, 2020)) and Final Rule, (Registration and Reregistration Fees for Controlled Substance and List I Chemical Registrants, 85 Fed. Reg. 44,710 (July 24, 2020)) is no exception. In addition to raising fees, DEA also codifies the conditions under which it will now refund registration fees.

Controlled Drugs webinar #3: Introduction to Controlled Drug Record Maintenance

NYSVMS

The third webinar in the NYSVMS Controlled Drugs series builds on the foundation from the introductory webinar, also presented by Jeffrey VanSplunder of Airis Pharmaceutical Solutions. This webinar will be held Tuesday, September 1, 2020 at 7 pm. It will go deeper into how to efficiently maintain DEA mandated records of controlled drugs. Have the peace of mind of knowing you are compliant by applying the practical steps delivered in this presentation. *CEs from attending a webinar are accepted for 100% of your CE requirement. However, if you access the recording later, that would be considered self-directed learning, which is also eligible for 100% of your CE requirement until Jan 1, 2021.

Fiorella, Hanson receive Cornell Atkinson award for COVID research grant

Cornell CVM

Since requesting proposals in April, the Cornell Atkinson Center for Sustainability has awarded approximately $250,000 in rapid-response grants for COVID-19-related Cornell research. With the final 10 awards announced, the center has now funded 25 faculty research projects aimed at helping find solutions for issues created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Graduate student awarded prize from American Society for Cell Biology

Cornell CVM

The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) has awarded Gwendolyn Beacham, a graduate student in biochemistry, molecular and cell biology at the Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine, the Porter Prize for Research Excellence. The Porter Prize is awarded to one or two graduate students and one postdoctoral researcher each year on the advancement of science and on the novelty and creativity of their findings.

AVMF to provide COVID-19 grants to veterinarians

AVMA

The American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF) has partnered with VCA Animal Hospitals to begin providing COVID-19 grants for veterinarians and to renew funding for similar grants to veterinary technicians, veterinary nurses, and assistants. VCA Animal Hospitals and the AVMF, AVMA’s charitable arm, are each donating $50,000 to create the new COVID-19 disaster relief grants for veterinarians. This AVMF program will provide $500 grants to meet the immediate needs of AVMA members facing hardship due to COVID-19.

Report identifies antimicrobial-resistant pathogens impacting animal health

AVMA

A new report on antimicrobial-resistant pathogens and their impact on animal health is now available for AVMA members to download. The report, Antimicrobial-resistant pathogens affecting animal health in the U.S., will be released publicly next week, and will serve as a resource to assist veterinary teams, producers, breeders, and animal owners with antimicrobial stewardship.

Checking for equine gastric ulcers

The Horse

My veterinarian thinks my horse has equine gastric ulcers and has suggested I bring him in for a gastroscopic examination. What is it, what can I expect to happen, and how should I prepare my horse? If your veterinarian has recommended a gastroscopy, sometimes called a “stomach scoping,” he or she probably thinks your horse has equine gastric ulcers. About 62% of horses have them to some degree. The good news is they can be treated and prevented in the future.
