Combating antimicrobial resistance (AMR)
As a pharmacist who provides education to healthcare professionals, I have seen devastating crises when no therapy is available to combat resistant pathogens. This is why I am committed to quality infectious diseases education at the New Mexico Health Sciences Center. Every day, I educate healthcare providers, patients and family members because I believe everyone plays a role in fighting the spread of resistant bacteria. Through teleECHOTM, we provide a rural and underserved population with up-to-date, relevant information related to the use of antibiotics. Education is a most powerful weapon, which we can use to change the world. Because all of us need to be resistance fighters.
