The Ketasco North America Alumni Association has elected new officers to run the affairs of the Association for the next three years.
The new president, Bernard Gadagbui, MSc., PhD, DABT, ERT (UK), a board certified and senior toxicologist based in Ohio, outlined plans of working together with all past students in North America to uplift the image of the school and find ways to assist the school in these challenging times.

The president outlined what he termed as bold plans for the Alumni Association and Ketasco. To accomplish these plans, he announced the formation of seven (7) committees to brainstorm on specific issues.
