Preserving Antibiotics, Reducing Use: The Public Health Imperative – Nov 5

From the White House to the World Health Organization, experts are warning of a possible return to the medical 'dark ages', unless urgent action is taken. The threat is from the steadily worsening global epidemic of antibiotic resistance, and the lack of any novel antibiotics being developed. Despite the urgency of the warnings, the pace of change in how society uses antibiotics is arguably slow in the U.S. Hear from experts in human and animal medicine and public health in this two-hour symposium, as we review the science of why so many are worried, and about what leaders in hospital, agriculture, food service and community settings are doing now to reduce antibiotic use. Learn what you can do to advocate for a medical future where antibiotics still work on November 5th, from 5 pm to 7:30 pm at the Mayo Auditorium, 420 Delaware St. SE, Minneapolis, MN.  This event is free and a light dinner will be served.  Learn more and RSVP
