BULLETIN BOARD

Final Section 1557 Rule - Nondiscrimination in Health Care Programs and Activities, by Donald Moy, Esq., Kern Augustine PC.


Antibiotic Resistance Resources: The use of antibiotics is the single most important factor leading to antibiotic resistance and antibiotics are among the most commonly prescribed drugs used in human medicine. To assist you in your efforts to educate your patients about proper prescribing, the Monroe County Department of Public Health and the Monroe County Medical Society developed a poster for use in exam and waiting rooms. The poster succinctly communicates needed information on bacteria and viruses and can be printed in either 8 1/2 x 11 or 11/17. There are numerous other promotional products at CDC's web site.  If you are interested in further exploring this topic see information at cdc.gov/getsmart/index.html
