Kind of a shameless plug, as I was quoted rather extensively in this September 25th article on antibiotics in Straits Times’ Mind Your Body section. But I am always very glad when the popular press runs an article on antimicrobial resistance or over-prescription of antibiotics – bringing awareness to the community is one of the key ways to generate the impetus for change. And antimicrobial resistance is a topic that seems far more difficult to grasp (or explain) compared to other “wicked problems” such as climate change – which people can directly experience, whether said experience can actually linked to climate change or not is another matter.
