Episode 2: Meet the Team – Amy Schmidt

Welcome to “Tales of the Resistance” a podcast centered around learning about the IAMResponisble team and antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Hosted by 3 iAMResponsible staffers Mara Zelt, Amber Patterson, and Bella Breinig – they looove those microbes.

This week on “Tales of the Resistance” we have a manure connoisseur, microbe master, and our boss Amy Schmidt! A faculty member at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and CEO of the Schmidt lab, Amy is one of the founders of the iAMResponisble team. In this episode, we chat about the concept of one-health, the importance of awareness, and how our culture is leading us blind in the fight against resistance. Huge thank you to Amy for joining us!
