Awareness campaign by fifth year students at Libano-Francaise Hospital - Zahle

In the light of extended antibiotic abuse and escalated bacterial resistance, the School of Pharmacy fifth year interns at Libano-Français Hospital – Zahle, organized an antibiotic awareness campaign entitled ‘Handle Antibiotics with Care’. Under the supervision of their preceptor, Dr. Susana Abdel Fattah, the students raised awareness about proper antibiotic use, and offered alternative nonpharmacological measures and natural supplements that could be used to treat conditions commonly misinterpreted as bacterial infections. Students discussed important practices to limit resistance emergence, and examined the participants’ awareness through a short quiz.Together#we#can#build#a#healthier#community#SoP#2018
