Ask the University of Washington to End the Use of Live Animals for Paramedic Training

Pig

Please take a minute to ask University of Washington president Ana Mari Cauce, Ph.D., to replace the use of pigs in the school’s paramedic training program with validated human-relevant training methods. We have provided text for you, but if you decide to write your own message, please be polite and encouraging. Here are some talking points:

  • Please replace the use of animals in the University of Washington’s paramedic training program with human-relevant training methods.
  • Anatomical differences between pigs and humans render this type of training suboptimal.
  • Other regional programs teaching the same procedures do not use animals.
  • UW has a state-of-the-art simulation center that could replace the use of animals immediately.

Recipients:

  • Ana Mari Cauce, Ph.D.
