While Advocate has a robust antimicrobial stewardship program for prescribing practices, the organization continues to purchase meat, poultry, seafood and dairy products that are produced with large amounts of non-therapeutic antibiotics. Their goal is to adopt a system-wide food procurement policy that includes the preferential purchasing of meat, poultry, seafood, and dairy products produced without the use of non-therapeutic antibiotics.
