Job Switch

While with the Center for Food Security and Public Health, Abbey Canon managed a nationally collaborative project to foster partnerships with public health, animal health and young agricultural organizations to prevent zoonotic influenza and other zoonoses among youth involved in animal agriculture. Now Canon will take a similar role as the new director of communications for the American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV). “I’m thrilled for Dr. Canon to join the AASV staff,” said Tom Burkgren, AASV executive director. “She brings with her a great background in the areas of communication, education and public health within the veterinary community.”
