The official 2021 BRAD will be held in the fall due to the current widespread restrictions on in-person events. In the meantime, BRAD is once again hosting a “virtual BRAD” this spring on April 15th. The COVID-19 pandemic has repeatedly highlighted the critical role of animals in public health and vaccine development. Let’s help the world see how animal research benefits each of us every day by sharing our stories of health and survival.
BRAD is collecting personal stories about diseases or medical conditions that have directly impacted your life or that of a loved one, human or animal. On April 15th, watch as BRAD social media posts connect real patient stories with animal research. They will specifically highlight which species helped find the treatment that benefited your friend, family member, pet, or yourself! To participate, simply click this link and share your story.
We encourage you to submit a photo with your story and be a part of the BRAD poster series to be printed & included in BRAD 2021 boxes. And guess what…prizes are involved! Individual and institutional prizes are available for participating.
Here’s a link with more information.
