    Overuse of antibiotics is the largest contributing factor to antibiotic resistance. To help improve care and slow the development of resistant bacteria, a physician at EVMS is developing a regional survey tracking antibiotic resistance patterns in the Hampton Roads region of southeastern Virginia. The survey will help physicians more quickly identify the antibiotics most likely to be effective against infections in the area, which will lower the overall number of antibiotics prescribed to a given patient. Learn more about the threat of antibiotic resistance, and how public health experts are taking steps to stop it, at evms.edu/nightmarebacteria.
