AAVPM Webinar: Policy in Practice: Hot Topics in Antibiotic Resistance and Pre-Harvest Food Safety

Presented by Karin Hoelzer, DVM

Karin Hoelzer, a veterinarian, leads The Pew Charitable Trusts’ work on antibiotic use in animal agriculture, focusing on policies and research related to the use of antibiotics in animals, foodborne pathogens, and other health risks related to the food supply. 


Veterinarians play key roles in mitigating the public health threats posed by foodborne pathogens and the global emergence of antibiotic resistance. These are two distinct yet related issues that both depend on farm-level interventions. Because the use of antibiotics in any setting drives resistance, it is important to be good stewards of these lifesaving resources. A variety of pre-harvest interventions have proven effective, although significant differences in physiology and industry structure among food-producing species mean that no single intervention is entirely successful at combatting all foodborne pathogens in every setting. In this webinar, I will highlight current trends, recent research, and relevant policy changes related to on-farm antibiotic stewardship and pre-harvest food safety.
