*Antibiotics Challenge™, Small World Initiative®, Nov. 1
For the fourth year, as part of our Do Something About Antibiotics Challenge™, we are teaming up with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) to encourage students to do something about superbugs and the antibiotic crisis. This coincides with the CDC’s Annual Antibiotic Awareness Week and global activities from the World Health Organization and other stakeholders. Our Challenge asks students to take action to help raise awareness about the antibiotic crisis and get people to act. Even though the United Nations calls this crisis “the greatest and most urgent global risk,” most people do not know what it is, let alone what they can do to solve it. Our Challenge leverages the creativity and ingenuity of students from around the world to help solve this public health emergency. This year, for the first time ever, Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas will also be participating in the Challenge. We are calling on all Richardson Chamber of Commerce members to get involved and partner with us.
