South Dakota “One Health” Meeting on antibiotic resistance – February 19, 2014, 9 AM, SDSU Student Union

Topic: “Preserving the Usefulness of Antibiotics:

Efforts in Animal and Human Medicine in South Dakota”

This will be the 5th meeting in a series that has brought together state agencies and interested stakeholders to discuss health and disease issues shared between humans and animals in South Dakota.  Oftentimes, agencies that work primarily with agriculture or wildlife do not get a chance to sit down with their counterparts in human and public health to talk over common issues in an informal setting.

This meeting will look at the topic of antimicrobial resistance in human and animal populations in South Dakota, with an emphasis on what efforts are underway to preserve the effectiveness of these medications.  To help the conversation along, we have arranged a great lineup of speakers.

Antimicrobial resistance is an important issue for those tasked with keeping people healthy as well as those whose focus is animal health.  It is an extremely complex and fascinating topic, one that we will not solve in an afternoon meeting!  However, gaining a knowledge of what efforts are taking place both in human and animal medicine is an important first step in understanding the challenges and what the future brings.
