About the event:
Help save our remaining antibiotics from extinction!
- Since the 1940’s antibiotics have been used to fight infections and have saved millions of lives
- However, antibiotics are rapidly becoming less effective because we aren't using them properly
- If bacteria become resistant to antibiotics then many simple infections (eg ear, tooth etc) and routine treatments such as hip replacements & caesarean sections will become increasingly dangerous and life threatening
- Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats facing society today.
To find out what you can do to help, visit the information stands hosted by the Schools of Pharmacy, Nursing & Medicine in the foyers of Stopford, University Place & Jean McFarlane, 10-2pm on the 18th November, European Antibiotic Awareness Day, and sign up to become an antibiotic guardian by visiting antibioticguardian.com entering the University postcode M13 9PL.
Help to make a difference by pledging your support and highlight Manchester as a beacon of antimicrobial stewardship!
