National Policy Course

The national policy program if one of three programs for professionals interested in learning more about the policy-making process. This course is a joint educational effort of the School for Global Animal Health at Washington State University and the Center for Animal Health and Food Safety at the University of Minnesota

About the program

This program is focused on legislative activity associated with global warming and greenhouse gas. There are several bills introduced during the legislative session that have implications for global warming. Some of these bills have livestock elements and others are more generally focused on the impact of global warming or greenhouse gas on public health, natural resources, and economic competitiveness. As a group, participants will select a few bills that are currently active in Congress and develop policy positions on these bills. The positions will be based on published research, advice from experts within and outside government with a variety of viewpoints and data, and your expertise.

Program may be taken as a one credit course through the University of Minnesota, course number VMED 7992.
