An important message in time for the upcoming flu season
This campaign, sponsored by the North Carolina Quality Center, features young children conveying an important message. It amazes me how many educated people still try to talk their way into receiving antibiotics for something as simple as a runny nose. Perhaps other states should follow North Carolina's lead and pursue aggressive campaigns to educate the public about the dangers of overprescription of antibiotics. As a researcher interested in public health, I applaud this type of outreach.
