Antimicrobial Resistance in Agriculture:
Is it a Worker Health Issue?
SEPTEMBER 26, 2019
1:00 – 4:00pm
On September 26th, 2019 the UMASH Annual Forum: “Antimicrobial Resistance in Agriculture: Is it a Worker Health Issue” gathered a multidisciplinary array of professionals to share information, identify key concerns, and strategize responses pertinent to the issue of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and its relevance to agricultural worker health and safety. Forum attendees represented many backgrounds, including health care, government, non-profits, and academia.
Expert panelists and participants alike emphasized that this complex issue requires thoughtful questions and multidisciplinary collaboration. We hope that the ideas and questions raised at the Forum appropriately set the stage for meaningful next steps, including the pursuit of UMASH funding for partner projects.
