One Health and the Politics of Antimicrobial Resistance

12th Street, Washington, DC

Dr. Kahn will discuss her recently published book, “One Health and the Politics of Antimicrobial Resistance”, in which she analyzes the surprising outcomes of differing policy approaches to antibiotic resistance around the globe. Integrating the perspectives of both medicine and agriculture and exploring the history and science behind the widespread use of growth-promoting antibiotics, Dr. Kahn examines the controversy in a unique way while offering policy recommendations that all sides can accept.

A native of California, Dr. Kahn holds a B.S. degree in nursing from UCLA, an M.D. from Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, a Master of Public Health from Columbia University and a Master of Public Policy from Princeton University.  Before joining the Program on Science and Global Security at Princeton University, she was managing physician for the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services, a medical officer for the Food and Drug Administration in Rockville, Maryland, an attending physician/educator at Prince George’s Hospital in Cheverly, Maryland and a staff physician at Gouverneur Hospital in New York, New York.  Dr. Kahn is a fellow of the American College of Physicians (ACP) and is a recipient of the New Jersey Chapter’s Laureate Award.
