Joining Forces Against AMR
On February 12, we teamed up with our friends at Science World and Antibiotic Wise for a fun and free event entitled Resistance: Addressing the threat of drug-resistant infections. To kick off the evening, we screened the film Resistance, which looks at one of the most revolutionary discoveries of the 20th century—antibiotics—and how we’re well on our way to squandering their power.
The film uses firsthand accounts of those who have experienced antibiotic resistant infections and the devastation they can wreak on an individual and family, plus expert interviews, to show us how we’ve gotten here.
The takeaway: while the situation is serious, we are not doomed. Yet.
A huge thanks again to our wonderful partners, Science World and Antibiotic Wise, for supporting this important work.
