Antibiotic Resistance: Policy Challenges and Solutions

  • Coffman Memorial Union (map)

Description: Antimicrobial resistance is one of the most serious threats to global health. Fast-evolving bacteria cause potentially deadly infections such as tuberculosis to develop strains that are no longer treatable by antibiotics. A looming, global health crisis is driven by inappropriate use of antimicrobials, the proliferation of antibiotics in the food supply, and the difficulty of developing new drugs. This lecture series will feature three prominent scholars examining this urgent topic from the perspectives of their fields of study: microbiology and infectious disease, agriculture and food production, and public policy.

CLE Credits: 1.5 Standard CLE credits have been requested (includes Live Lecture and Webcast); Event Code #250240
