CANCELED SMART TOWNS: How Antibiotics Revolutionized the World
Dr. Jason Taylor, Pharm.D., is a clinical coordinator with Ascension Providence Rochester Hospital. Dr. Taylor's presentation will focus on the history of antibiotic discovery and how that profoundly impacted public health. He will also discuss how the new challenge with antibiotics is resistant bacteria and how that is limiting treatment options.
