As an extension of the National AALAS, Hawaii AALAS is a non-profit, educational and networking group in the field of lab animal medicine and research.
In March 2009, employees from the University of Hawaii and Tripler were able to start the Hawaii Branch of AALAS with help from many of the vendors that both of our facilities work with on a day-to-day basis. Currently, the branch is growing thanks to the semi-annual meetings which bring together members from Tripler Army Medical Center, Small Animal Facility, University of Hawaii, and private Pharmaceutical companies to hear education presentations from a variety of vendors and speakers.
Members have the opportunity to:
Attend research and vendor presentations on new and exciting work and technologies
Gain knowledge in the field of lab animal medicine
Build their resume
Strengthen graduate or veterinary school applications
Network with other students and professionals
Learn about new topics and current issues in the field
Receive continuing education units to keep up professional certifications
**Lunch and Refreshments are always provided**
