Antibiotic use - Working together for better solutions

The National Institute for Animal Agriculture (NIAA) will once again 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.

All sectors of the animal food production and human/public health industries will come together around one of the most important topics in animal and human health today. The Symposium entitled, Antibiotic Use - Working Together for Better Solutions, takes place November 1-3, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Dulles, Herndon, Va.

This will be the sixth Symposium hosted by NIAA and its partners. Presenters from organizations such as the CDC, FDA, and USDA will lead the discussions, 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.

Building trust, developing tools and deploying strategies will take all of us Working Together.

Registration is now open. View complete symposium information on the NIAA website.
