Antibiotic Resistance: What Collaboration and Policy Can Do For Our Future

November 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Thursday, November 15, 6–8:00 PM EST

Harvard Law School- Wasserstein Hall Room 1010, 1585 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02138

U.S. PIRG and Harvard Law School invite you to a panel discussion about antibiotic resistance as part of Antibiotic Awareness Week. The World Health Organization ranks antibiotic resistance as a top global health threat and experts estimate that without swift action, drug-resistant infections could kill more people each year by 2050 than cancer does today. The panel discussion will look at where we are now and how research, collaboration, and policy can encourage better antibiotic stewardship in human health care and animal agriculture, as well as effectively develop new antibiotics.

The panel features experts in the fields of public health policy, infectious disease, food supply chain management, and shareholder advocacy.

Speakers:

  • Maria Balice; Senior Director of Communication and Strategic Partnership at Applegate
  • Nicole Negowetti; Clinical Instructor at Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic
  • Sujit Suchindran; MD, Infectious Disease Specialist at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center
  • Jared Fernandez; Green Century Capital Management
  • Matt Wellington; Antibiotics Program Director at U.S. PIRG
  • Kathy Talkinton; Antibiotics Project Director at Pew Charitable Trust
