RUMA Conference 29th Oct


With the final programme for RUMA's third biennial conference on 29 October now published, have you secured your place yet?

Just two days before the Brexit deadline, the conference use the theme 'Building on Success' to examine whether recent progress in stewarding antibiotics can be maintained, and what needs to be done to better support global efforts to battle antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The role of media and public opinion in achieving positive change will also be discussed, and whether UK farming's animal health and welfare and food safety are robust enough to take advantage of opportunities as well as address upcoming market challenges.

Headlining the event will be American journalist and author on public and global health and food policy Maryn McKenna, who will be dissecting the role of the public and media in driving change in medicine stewardship.

More details about the conference are available on the RUMA website here. Tickets for the RUMA conference can be purchased via Eventbrite, with places limited.
