Dr. Akhtar announced 2015 winner of Belton Mouras Grassroots Leadership Award

On March 29, 2015 in New Orleans, Louisiana, Dr. Akhtar was presented with the Belton Mouras Grassroots Leadership Award for her efforts to show how animal protection benefits public health.

“What we are forging is not a revolutionary change, but an evolutionary change. We are changing the very way we define ourselves and the world around us.

I am extremely proud to stand among the hundreds of thousands of remarkable people selflessly working for this change and to do my part in showing that quite simply, what’s good for animals is also good for humans.”
