Dr. Logan France is currently a post-doctoral fellow and veterinary resident at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2011 and received her veterinary degree in 2015 from Texas A&M University. She then began a clinical residency in laboratory animal medicine at Johns Hopkins, which she will complete in June 2018. From May 2015 -June of 2016 she was one of two recipients of the Michael D. Hayre Fellowship in Public Outreach, awarded by Americans for Medical Progress (AMP). Through this, she developed and implemented Biomedical Research Awareness Day, also known as BRAD, a day devoted to honoring the critical role of animals in biomedical research and increase awareness of the importance of biomedical and animal research. In 2016, 20 veterinary schools around the country held celebrations on this day; in 2017, over 60 institutions in three continents hosted celebrations, including undergraduate, graduate, and medical schools. The program continues to expand, and the third annual BRAD will be celebrated on April 19th, 2018.
