Dominik Dabrowski, a resident in the Occupational and Environmental Medicine (OEM) program, wrote an editorial that was recently published in The Minnesota Daily.
Dr. Dabrowski’s article, “How Antimicrobial Resistance connects to us, what to do about it,” addresses the issue of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), the increasing effect on public health, and a multi-faceted approach for tackling this emerging health issue.
With the increasing migration of people, expanded relationships with animals and a shifting global climate, mean variables affecting AMR have been amplified. The catastrophic spread of superbugs could go from being a rare possibility to an everyday occurrence in just a matter of years if left unchecked.
In a word, the stakeholders involved in this wave of AMR is: everyone. It is truly difficult to find anyone not directly or indirectly impacted by this problem. Anyone who can acquire an infection, anyone who works with animals and anyone who works or utilizes health care or environmental services, is potentially at risk.Dominik Dabrowski
