    As part of the continued effort to combat antibiotic resistance, the Obama Administration convened a “White House Forum on Antibiotic Stewardship” to bring together key human and animal health constituencies involved in antibiotic stewardship to address the development, promotion, and implementation of activities to ensure the responsible use of antibiotics. As part of the event, more than 150 food companies, retailers, and human and animal health stakeholders highlighgted commitments to implement changes over the next five years to slow the emergence of resistant bacteria and prevent the spread of resistant infections. 


    The Society of Infectious Diseases Pharmacists was invited to attend and was represented by SIDP President, David Bearden.
