Antibiotics: When You Need Them… And When You Don’t. A presentation for seniors Nov. 9 by Dr. Diane Kane

Antibiotics are powerful medicines that kill bacteria that cause infections. But each year in the U.S., 47 million unnecessary antibiotic prescriptions are written. As a result of this overuse, we now have bacteria that resist antibiotics, causing infections that are harder to cure and more costly to treat.
