Antibiotic Stewardship: Saving Drugs, Saving Money
The 54rd Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC) runs through September 9th in Washington D.C. , and once again we’re fortunate to have videos of press conferences being webcast live and archived via MicrobeWorld’s Youtube channel.
On Saturday two videos were live streamed, and the schedule calls for 3 more today (Sunday) and four on Monday (Sept 8th). Subjects range from antibiotics and antivirals to MERS and Ebola.
Some background and an abbreviated list of scheduled videos follow:
Participate in ASM Live at ICAAC 2014 in Washington, D.C., where we will be live streaming video interviews of select presenters with host Michael Schmidt, Professor and Vice Chairman of Microbiology and Immunology at the Medical University of South Carolina and co-host of the This Week in Microbiology podcast sponsored by the American Society for Microbiology.
Tapings will take place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Room 146A, in Washington, D.C., and meeting registrants are encouraged to attend. You can watch ASM Live below and topics will be archived immediately on YouTube and MicrobeWorld for future viewing.
