US - Erin Johnson, DVM, has been promoted to technical manager on the PRRSolutions Team in the Swine Division at Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. (BIVI).

The PRRSolutions Team leads the Area Regional Control & Elimination (ARC&E) efforts and is supported and advised by recognized PRRS experts from across the US. The team conducts and coordinates the research, design and development of the ARC&E and plays an active role in supporting efforts of ARC&E working groups across the country.

PRRS (porcine reproductive & respiratory syndrome) is one of the most widespread and costly diseases that swine producers face. BIVI is a recognised leader in helping prevent PRRS through a combination of sponsored research, education, biosecurity practices and vaccination.

“I have had the pleasure of working with Dr Johnson for several years,” says Edgar Diaz, DVM, senior associate director of the team. “She not only has technical knowledge of the disease, but also brings invaluable day-to-day experience with PRRS through working with producers throughout the Midwest.”

Dr Johnson has been a swine professional services veterinarian for BIVI for the past six years. During that time she has worked with a variety of customers, primarily in Illinois, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania. She is based in Mahomet, Illinois.

“While in the field, she earned the confidence of our customers and has become a valuable resource for technical swine disease information,” Dr Diaz says, “particularly in regards to PRRS and Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae.”
