IPFD's Second Student Project Associate: Ariel Minardi
Our second IPFD Student, Ariel Minardi (a 3rd year veterinary student from Ohio State University), is developing a series of articles and a video blog or ‘vlog’ to connect with the IPFD/DogWellNet community. For an overview of her project and links to other material on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) and Prudent Use of Antibiotics see: IPFD Student Project 'B.A.R.K. | Bacterial Antimicrobial Resistance Knowledge' - Overview
Ariel's blog includes vlogs (video blogs) on the progress of her project. Her videos, also housed on our new YouTube Channel will focus on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and will cover some of the more interesting and controversial aspects of this issue. Ariel’s blog will also include filmed interviews with experts in AMR.
We wish to thank the Skippy Frank Fund for generously sponsoring Ariel’s project!
