UCLA Health is proud to recognize Antibiotic Awareness Week, which is observed in the U.S. on November 18-24, 2021 to acknowledge the global threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and to promote best practices to curb the spread of drug-resistant infections. Join us in our efforts to prevent AMR!
