This morning I was excited to find an email in my inbox saying that an email I sent has made a difference. I subscribe to action alerts from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. Six weeks ago the organization asked subscribers to email the University of Michigan, asking them to end the cruel and unnecessary use of live dogs in the it’s trauma training course. The university received more than 20,000 emails and are no longer using live dogs for training! We CAN make a difference in this world! The organization is now asking that emails be sent to the University Hospital in Newark for the same purpose. For more information, visit the website: www.pcrm.org.
