[FAIR] Antimicrobial Resistance Awareness Fair

  • 2168 Rayburn House Office Building (The Gold Room) (map)

A link to the full invitation can be found here.  

Please join AdvaMed, BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) and the Infectious Diseases Society of America to learn about the global threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Approximately 700,000 people die every year because they have been infected with a drug resistant pathogen. AMR can affect anyone of any age, in any country. 

The Antimicrobial Resistance Aware Fair will feature interactive displays on patient resources, the public health response and research on AMR, diagnostics and treatment.  The fair will also highlight real-life case studies that explain the various aspects of AMR and the real threat to patient safety, medical advances and public health.

The event is cooperation with U.S. Representatives Mike Thompson (D-CA-5th), Erik Paulsen (R-MN-3rd), John Shimkus (R-IL-15th) and Gene Green (D-TX-29th).
