Baystate Medical Center Animal Use Sparks Doctor-Led Demonstration

SPRINGFIELD, MASS.—On June 29, area physician Margaret Peppercorn and Massachusetts residents will be on site at Baystate Medical Center to call for an end to the use of live pigs in Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) courses—and a switch to human-relevant methods. The Physicians Committee, a nonprofit representing more than 12,000 concerned physicians, is organizing the event. The group will also file a federal complaint with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Eastern Region Animal Care office, citing inadequate oversight of the training protocol.
