Foundation membership drive announced! The WSAVA’s charitable Foundation has appointed a new Vice President and issued a call for new members to help it continue its work to improve the veterinary care of companion animals globally through science and education.  

Dr Mark Johnston, Managing Director of Vetstream Ltd, Cambridge, UK, becomes Vice President, replacing Professor Michael Day who has stepped down in order to focus on his new role as an Executive Board member of the WSAVA.  

The WSAVA Foundation is also looking for new members to promote its work in their region and to help raise funds.

Dr Gabriel Varga, President of the WSAVA Foundation and Regional Director, Africa, for Zoetis, says: “We thank Michael for his huge contribution to our flagship AFSCAN project so far and are delighted that he will continue to help us with the AFSCAN Research Awards.

“We also welcome Mark to his new role. His company, Vetstream, a global provider of digital resources to the veterinary profession, is a Global Educational Partner and Communications Partner of the WSAVA and he has been closely involved with AFSCAN since the very start. We look forward to his continuing contribution.

“The achievements of the WSAVA Foundation and AFSCAN show what is possible with a clear vision and collaboration across the veterinary sector. We hope some of our colleagues from around the world will step up to support us in our work by becoming members of the WSAVA Foundation.”
