The Levy CIMAR’s own Claire Fellman, DVM, PhD, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Clinical Sciences at the Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, spoke today on a “One Health Approach to Antimicrobial Stewardship in Companion Animals.”
A practicing small-animal internist and clinical pharmacologist, Dr. Fellman discussed the opportunities and challenges identified during interprofessional efforts to bring successful human antimicrobial stewardship strategies to veterinary settings. Dr. Fellman’s research interests include the effects of veterinary antimicrobial use on household sharing of resistant bacteria and developing metrics and benchmarks for veterinary antimicrobial use.
Dr. Fellman and colleagues from TUSM, Tufts Vet, and Tufts Medical Center (including CIMAR’s Shira Doron, MD, Chief Infection Control Officer for Tufts Medicine) are part of an interdisciplinary team dedicated to improving antimicrobial stewardship for humans and companion animals.
