U.S. Antibiotic Awareness Week: Be Antibiotics Aware
November 12, 2018 - November 18, 2018
Mark your calendars for November 12 – 18, 2018 and plan to join us as we observe U.S. Antibiotic Awareness Week! Each year in the United States, at least 2 million people become infected with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics and at least 23,000 people die as a direct result of these infections. Many more will die from complications by an antibiotic-resistant infection.
