Presidential Advisory Council on Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria (PACCARB)

The Presidential Advisory Council on Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria (Advisory Council) will meet at least two times per year in Washington, DC. Meetings are typically two days in length and cover the most recent and pressing topics surrounding antibiotic-resistance in the nation. All agenda items are subject to change as needed.
