The National Institute for Animal Agriculture released a "Bridging the Gap between Animal Health and Human Health" symposium white paper last week. The paper highlights the complexities between antibiotic resistance and animal and human health. The white paper was developed from proceedings of a symposium held in November.
"This white paper highlights information delivered during the symposium by 20 different speakers – including antibiotic use and resistance experts representing animal health, human health and public health," says Nevil Speer, Western Kentucky University, who co-chaired the symposium.
Participants also included a consumer advocate organization, grocery retailers, staff members and selected media representing agriculture and consumer advocates.
