Peter Davies Appointed to National Presidential Advisory Council
October 26, 2015 - Peter Davies B.V.Sc., Ph.D., professor of Swine Health and Production, and UMASH Principal Investigator on the MRSA Colonization and Infection in Swine Veterinarians project, has recently been appointed one of only four veterinarians in the nation to the Presidential Advisory Council on Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria.
This advisory council was created to detect, prevent and control antibiotic resistance in a strategic and sustained way. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, “the work of this advisory council will compliment other federal efforts and ultimately preserve the effectiveness of antibiotics, strengthen surveillance, prevent the transmission of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, further new research, and improve international coordination.”
