About the forum

Antibiotics were heralded as “miracle drugs” by physicians and veterinarians alike when they became available more than 60 years ago. Antibiotics have significantly reduced deaths by infectious bacterial diseases in people and animals; human deaths by infectious bacterial diseases today are less than 1/20 of what they were in 1900 according to the FDA. Meanwhile bacteria have evolved to develop resistance to many antibiotics. Defining appropriate uses of antibiotics and addressing antibiotic resistance are issues for both science and society.


Tough issues like antibiotics and agriculture require a broad perspective and inquisitive mind and a commitment to collaboration. The University of Minnesota’s Center for Integrative Leadership and Global Initiative for Food Systems Leadership invite you to participate in the first of a series of “Finding Common Ground” forums designed to foster conversation among participants with diverse perspectives to discover and advance a common good. The focus of this first forum will be antibiotics and agriculture, where representatives from academia, media, Industry, intergovernmental, nongovernmental and governmental organizations will examine this issue in a neutral forum while considering multiple perspectives.
