For the past 3 years ASPET members attending EB have spent a day volunteering in the local communities: 2009 building homes with Habitat for Humanity in the Upper 9th Ward in New Orleans; 2010 and 2011 preparing and serving meals to homeless residents of Pasadena and Washington DC, respectively. The Behavioral Pharmacology Division of ASPET will again sponsor a volunteer opportunity at EB 2012 in San Diego. Negotiations are underway with several local agencies for volunteer activities on Friday 20 April 2012. The details of those activities will develop over the next month or two as it becomes clear how many ASPET attendees will participate. If you plan to volunteer please contact Charles P France
