The next free Farm Foundation Forum, from Jan. 20-21 at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., will focus on antibiotic use in humans and animals.

Joe Swedberg, chair of Farm Foundation's Antimicrobial Education Project Advisory Committee, will moderate the panel. Panel members are: Terry Coffey, Ph.D., Smithfield Foods; Steve Solomon, M.D., Global Public Health Consulting; Jerome Lyman, McDonald's Corporation, retired; and Kathy Talkington, Pew Charitable Trusts.
