A DC Science Cafe Event...
The Science, Medicine, and
Politics of Antibiotic Resistance
Antibiotic resistance is a global threat to public health and the problem is worsening. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that antibiotic-resistant bacteria cause at least 2 million illnesses and 23,000 deaths each year in the U.S. alone. Meanwhile, the rate of discovery and development of new antibiotics is slowing down just when it needs to be speeding up. Join us on Tuesday, October 21, for a lively discussion about the science, medicine, and policy implications of this growing challenge to public health.
Tuesday, October 21, 2014, 6:30 - 8:30 pm, at Busboys and Poets, 5th and K St., NW, Washington, DC
