Public Talk About Monkeys at UW Madison

The Wisconsin National Primate Research Center’s public relations specialist Jordana Lenon will discuss research and animal care this Thursday, May 19 at the Meadowridge Branch of the Madison Public Library.

This is a public event. Those concerned with the treatment of primates in experiments at UW Madison should make every attempt to attend.

The university reports using approximately 2000 monkeys annually in experiments ranging from always-fatal infectious disease experiments, highly invasive brain and eye experiments, and other dead-end experiments on fear, hunger, fetal alcohol exposure and hormone imbalances.

This is an incredibly rare opportunity to ask a direct question to the university PR spin-doctor about the university’s use of monkeys.

When: May 19, 2011 from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m.
Where: Meadowridge Branch of the Madison Public Library, 5740 Raymond Road, Madison, WI 53711
