Last week in Washington D.C. I had the honor of being on a keynote panel to share my patient story. The congress was attended by people from around the world who could offer solutions to the antibiotic resistance problem other than simply new antibiotics which are drying up. Also in attendance were representatives form the FDA, DHHS, as well as an address from Dr. Tedros of the World Health Organization.
I was on a panel with Dr. Neil Clancy M.D., an Infectious Diseases specialist from the University of Pittsburgh and Tom Lowery, Chief Scientific Officer of T2 Biosystems sharing my story to bring awareness to sepsis and antimicrobial resistance and what it can do to a patient.
Part of one day also included a video shoot of my story complete with makeup and hair!
