AMR from a One-Health Perspective

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has been recognized globally as a significant threat to public health. The causes and repercussions of growing AR are highly complex, which is why attempts to address the issue must utilize a One-Health (systems connecting the health of people, animals, and their shared environment) approach. 

The national extension team iAMResponsible teaches a multi-university virtual course on antimicrobial resistance across the one health spectrum every spring, some of the course materials are now available here at LPELC– because everyone needs to know about AMR!
