Congressional Briefing on Antibiotic Resistance

  • U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, Congressional Meeting Room North

Antibiotic resistance is on course to claim the lives of 10 million people annually around the world by 2050 unless coordinated policy steps are taken now. Within the U.S., the infections already sicken at least 2 million people and kill 23,000 annually. The briefing offers an opportunity to hear from physicians, a patient, and agency leaders on the impact of antimicrobial resistance and what is being done to address the problem.

The briefing will feature presentations from the following speakers:

  • Anne Schuchat, MD, Acting Director, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
  • Anthony S. Fauci, MD, Director, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases
  • Brianna Strand, Port Orchard, WA, Survivor
