Tackling Antimicrobial Resistance with The Power of Science

Multimedia with summary

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR), or the ability of a bacterium, virus, or fungus to develop resistance to the medicines commonly used to treat them, is one of the leading global public health threats today. Currently, AMR causes more than 700,000 deaths annually. If left unchecked, this number is expected to rise to 10 million deaths annually by 2050. In collaboration with the infectious disease community, we are working to develop solutions that address and help treat the serious and growing AMR crisis.

Raising awareness will also remind all of us to use primary actions like hand and surface hygiene to prevent infections, so the need for considering antibiotics is reduced.

Boy!

For those of you who read last week, that was the answer to our question. We are so very excited, and we are grateful that our baby is looking good and healthy on the ultrasound.

Now, on to this week’s post. Growing up, I had the inestimable blessing of a Southern mother who made dinner for the family most nights. This meant that I ate well. Mom, I didn’t say this enough back then, but thank you!

Antibiotics Resistance: it’s not "what if" it’s when
