Following its successful 2011 symposium on antibiotics in food animals, the National Institute for Animal Agriculture (NIAA) will host “A One Health Approach to Antimicrobial Use and Resistance: A Dialogue for a Common Purpose” symposium on Nov. 13-15, in Columbus, Ohio.

The symposium is open to all who have a stake in engaging in meaningful dialogue and creating successful strategies to preserve antibiotic efficacy.

 “There is a need for sharing of relevant, scientific information and ongoing dialogue among experts within animal agriculture and those within public health,” states symposium co-chair Leah C. Dorman, DVM, Director of Food Programs, Center for Food and Animal Issues, Ohio Farm Bureau Federation.

“This symposium promises to deliver the latest research findings and serve as a platform where experts in the field of antimicrobials—public, animal and environmental health—can engage and learn from each other. It’s also where consumers, policy makers and organization leaders, etc. can become armed with the facts presented by these individuals.”

Symposium co-chair Jennifer Koeman, DVM, Director of Producer and Public Health for the National Pork Board, underscores that the 2012 antibiotic use and resistance symposium will build upon information and consensus points established from the 2011 symposium that was conducted in Chicago.

In addition to high-level, highly regarded speakers, the symposium will include  group discussions and time  for attendees to ask questions.
