New WVA Councillor for Latin America Region
Dr Joe Alejandra Vargas Blanco replaced Dr Guilherme Costa as the WVA Councillor for Latin America Region.
Dr Guilherme Costa decided to resign from the
position of WVA Councillor for Latin America due to very busy schedule as
Vice-Chairperson of the Codex Alimentarius Executive Committee. The WVA President
offered this position to Joe Alejandra Vargas Blanco from the Colegio de
Médicos Veterinarios de Costa Rica (she arrived third in the 2014 elections for
this position). Dr Vargas Blanco promptly accepted to represent the Latin
America Region at the WVA. The WVA welcomes Dr Vargas Blanco to the WVA Council
and wishes her a successful term as WVA Councillor for Latin America.
