Minimizing the Risk of Antimicrobial Resistance from Food Animal Production

September 28 @ 08:30 - 18:00

$15.00

Antimicrobial resistance is a major public health concern that has prompted a movement to reduce the use of antibiotics, including antibiotics used in food animal production. To meet the growing global demand for animal protein, new approaches are needed to maintain the health and welfare of food animals while reducing the risk of antimicrobial resistance to build up in people and the environment. This daylong meeting will discuss the drivers that could lead to antimicrobial resistance from food animal production, primary pathways of antimicrobial resistance transmission, and the drive to prioritize the use of non-medically important antibiotics. The symposium will also discuss an array of strategies to mitigate antimicrobial resistance, from herd/flock management strategies to biological approaches including biophages and vaccines, communication strategies that promote a nuanced approach for best practices and positive outcomes.
