In 2014, the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) Report, recognized that antibiotic resistance is a global threat to public health. The report acknowledges that a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach is critical to reduce resistance and identifies a need to enhance knowledge and increase awareness among stakeholders including human and health professionals and veterinarians. This session will provide the catalyst for registered dietitians to gain better perspectives on the complexities of antibiotic use and what can be done through effective stewardship initiatives, to reduce the threat of antibiotic resistance.
