Be Smart About Antibiotics

World Antibiotic Awareness Week November 13-19, 2017.
This years theme is to always seek advice from a health care, professional provider before taking antibiotics. That way you won’t be taking them unnecessarily and potentially causing resistance. Antibiotics are a resource only to be used when it is appropriate.
Antibiotic resistance occurs naturally but misuse accelerates the process. Be smart about antibiotics.
