Here's Why the Swine Health Information Center Needs Your Help

The Swine Health Information Center (SHIC) wants your input.

As SHIC prepares to develop its 2023 Plan of Work, it seeks broad industry input to help guide activities in the coming year.

"Input may include topic areas, research priorities and identified industry needs in which SHIC should focus efforts, such as an emerging swine disease or an emerging swine health issue. Rather than restricting efforts of the Center, the Plan of Work provides a roadmap for the next year but remains flexible, allowing SHIC to react to issues of the industry as they occur in real-time while staying true to the organization’s mission," SHIC said in its December newsletter. 

The mission of SHIC is to protect and enhance the health of the U.S. swine herd through coordinated global disease monitoring, targeted research investments that minimize the impact of future disease threats and analysis of swine health data. That's why the broader pork industry is encouraged and invited to be a part of SHIC's next plan of work.
