ICACC 2014 Videos: Antibiotic Stewardship, Peramivir Study & More


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:
