CDC Webinar: Understanding AMR in Water

Session Overview: Have you ever thought about the germs living in water around us? Antimicrobial-resistant germs and their genes can contaminate streams, rivers, lakes, and oceans from discharge that flows from hospitals, farms, or sewage systems. Even properly functioning wastewater treatment systems may not fully remove resistant germs and their genes. The magnitude of this risk to human health is still not fully understood. Join us to hear from global experts working to track antimicrobial resistance in water and understand its impact on public health, while taking action to address this potential threat.
