About this Event

Antimicrobial resistance in food-producing animals threatens the efficacy of therapeutics that ensure animal health and welfare as well as poses a threat to human health. Antimicrobial stewardship is critical to slowing the rate at which bacteria develop resistance to antimicrobial drugs. The California Department of Food and Agriculture in collaboration with Washington State University and the University of California, Davis, propose a one-day, multimedia, interactive conference that will bring practicing veterinarians and livestock producers together to learn about the threat antimicrobial resistance poses to animal health and human health, establish clear responsibilities of veterinarians and producers, and provide evidence-based, sustainable solutions to develop practical antimicrobial stewardship plans for their farms.

Funding for this conference was made possible, in part, by the Food and Drug Administration through grant 1 R13 FD006696-01. The views expressed in written conference materials or publications and by speakers and moderators do not necessarily reflect the official policies of the Department of Health and Human Services; nor does any mention of trade names, commercial practices, or organization imply endorsement by the United States Government.
