AMES, IOWA (May 4, 2022) – The National Institute of Antimicrobial Resistance Research and Education (NIAMRRE) is pleased to announce the selection of the initial cohort for its One Health Interprofessional Antimicrobial Resistance Education workshop. The cohort of 33 individuals, representing all One Health disciplines (human, animal, plant, and environmental health), is a diverse mix of practitioners, consultants, staff, faculty, and students from across the United States.
“The concepts of One Health and Interprofessional Education are both rooted in understanding how individual components of systems work together,” said Dr. Paul Plummer, NIAMRRE Executive Director. “It was imperative in our recruitment of this cohort that we build teams with different perspectives on antimicrobial stewardship and decision-making so participants can learn from and evaluate approaches used in other sectors.”
The program will kick off with an in-person workshop at the NIAMRRE Annual Conference, held May 16-18 in Lincoln, Nebraska, in partnership with NIAMRRE member University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Following the conference, the program will transition to online synchronous seminars and asynchronous team topical and case discussions, culminating in a capstone online case discussion and virtual presentation at the October 2022 NIAMRRE Quarterly Research Symposium.
Cohort members include:
Akhil Anilkumar Vinithakumari
Anthony de Leon
Muahammed Shafeekh Muyyarikkandy
Audrey Tran Lam
This workshop was partially funded as “Promoting Interprofessional One Health Education as a means of mitigating antimicrobial resistance across the food chain” by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Agriculture and Food Research Initiative.
