Dr. Lisa Becton will be joining the Swine Health Information Center in January as its next associate director. Most recently, Becton served the National Pork Board as its director of swine health. Becton will succeed Dr. Megan Niederwerder, who will become the SHIC executive director following the retirement of Dr. Paul Sundberg at the end of the year. The SHIC was launched in 2015 with Pork Checkoff funding to protect and enhance the health of the U.S. swine herd by minimizing the impact of emerging disease threats.
