Swine Health Information Center launches website

Website to help swine industry stay abreast of developments in monitoring, managing diseases.

The Swine Health Information Center (SHIC), a newly established independent, non-profit organization dedicated to improving non-regulatory disease preparedness, has officially launched its website to provide the latest information about emerging diseases that threaten the health of the U.S. swine herd.

The site, www.swinehealth.org, will help veterinarians, pork producers, researchers and others with an interest in the health of pigs stay abreast of developments in monitoring and managing diseases, said Dr. Paul Sundberg, executive director of SHIC.

In addition to providing the latest news, the site will also have detailed information about specific emerging diseases and will be where SHIC posts calls for proposals on specific research topics, Sundberg said.

SHIC officially launched the first of July and is located in Perry, Iowa, in office space leased from the American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV).
