Connections: The Over-Prescribing Of Antibiotics

A discussion about a study on the over-prescribing of antibiotics.

The CDC has a new report out that says doctors are over-prescribing antibiotics. This is leading to unnecessary infections, along with a growing list of microbes that are resistant to antibiotic treatment. So what should doctors and patients do? We sat down with Dr. Ghinwa Dumyati and Dr. Paul Braman, infectious disease specialists from the University of Rochester Medical Center. Dr. Dumyati helped write the CDC report.
