The New Hampshire Antimicrobial Stewardship Symposium is a one day event to address the pressing public health need for increased antimicrobial stewardship. We hope to bring together leaders in stewardship and those interested in becoming more involved across various healthcare facility types and disciplines related to antimicrobial resistance. This symposium will be a forum to work together towards coordinated statewide stewardship efforts. The day will be filled with presentations from leaders in the field, both nationally and in New Hampshire, as well as networking with colleagues involved in antibiotic stewardship.

We look forward to covering a wide variety of topics relevant to antimicrobial stewardship. Leaders in stewardship will be joining us to discuss national and local efforts. We plan to discuss important issues of stewardship in different healthcare settings (e.g. acute care hospitals, long term care, outpatient/urgent care, etc.), as well as the role of veterinary/animal health issues as related to antimicrobial resistance and stewardship.

We plan to provide Continuing Education Credits for all disciplines.
