As we gear up for the 2016 Futures Fellow Training Institute in Amsterdam, HSP recognizes one of last year’s stellar Fellows, Raheel Suleman, who will return to this year’s training as an Alumni Leader.
To emphasize the power of preparedness, during the month of September, the Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response at the CDC adopted a targeted approach to their outreach, focusing on a different area of preparation each week. We applied their preparedness themes to the rising threat of AMR in effort to broaden what it means to be prepared.
As the 2016 Futures Fellowship Training Institute nears, HSP would like to formally introduce this year’s Fellows.
For September’s ‘Global Infectious Disease and Surveillance’ module, we asked the Futures Fellows to use social media to explain AMR to non-scientist family and friends. Ranging from hand-drawn comics to impassioned Facebook posts, the approaches were diverse but shared common themes like defining key terms for understanding AMR and simple steps for reducing the risk of infection.
