NIAA Antibiotics Symposium Emphasizes Animal and Human Health Collaboration
August 19, 2016

The National Institute for Animal Agriculture will host a unique gathering focused on a collaborative and continued dialogue about antibiotic use and antimicrobial resistance. Not about one point of view, the 2016 NIAA hosted antibiotics symposium provides a setting for a thoughtful exchange of ideas for the betterment of animal and human health.

The symposium, Antibiotic Use - Working Together for Better Solutions, takes place Nov. 1-3 at the Hyatt Regency Dulles, Herndon, Va.

All sectors of the animal food production and human/public health industries will come together around this - one of the most important topics in animal and human health today. The sixth symposium hosted by NIAA and its partners, NIAA continues to develop the dialog on antimicrobial resistance through collaboration and cross-industry discussion.

Presenters will be from organizations such as the Center for Disease Control, Food and Drug Administration and U.S. Department of Agriculture, along with industry leaders, retailers, processors, producers and representatives from both human and public health. To move forward, animal agriculture must outline what appropriate use of antibiotics really means, and identify the core elements of stewardship.
