POLICY AND ADVOCACY
IDSA Leaders Appointed to New Presidential Advisory Council on Combating Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria
Martin Blaser, MD, FIDSA (IDSA past president); Helen Boucher, MD, FIDSA (IDSA incoming treasurer); Angela Caliendo, MD, PhD, FIDSA (IDSA Diagnostics Task Force chair); Sara Cosgrove, MD, FSHEA; Robert Weinstein, MD, FIDSA (IDSA Antibiotic Resistance Committee member); and Bruce Gellin, MD, MPH have been appointed to the newly established Presidential Advisory Council on Combating Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria (CARB).  

For years IDSA has been urging the federal government to create a group of non-government experts to advise government leaders on federal policy to address antimicrobial resistance.  The Society is honored to have such strong representation on this new body, whose formation is a part of larger efforts, led by the White House, to advance a set of comprehensive solutions to address antibiotic resistance.

Dr. Blaser will chair the Council, whose first public meeting occured on September 29. The Council will provide federal leaders with advice, information and recommendations regarding antibiotic stewardship, surveillance, and data collection in both human medicine and agriculture; development of new human antibiotics, diagnostics and agricultural alternatives for antibiotics; research on resistance; and the prevention of antibiotic-resistant infections.  The complete membership roster of the Council may be viewed here.
