Biology Seminar: Dr. George Sakoulas

The paradigms of treating bacterial infections were established based on fairly arbitrary clinical decisions early in the clinical antibiotic era of the 1940's and 1950's. Treatment durations and the use of single antibiotics were decided upon a much different host profile of patients than the contemporary patient population. Today's antibiotic-receiving patients are older, have more medical problems, are immunocompromised, and may even have infected biomedical devices (prosthetic joints, pacemakers, mechanical valves) that did not exist 80 years ago.

Biology Seminar: Dr. Tina Tran

In this presentation, I will discuss innovative and community-centric care models that our team has implemented, with the goal of ensuring optimal access to essential medications and healthcare services for chronic disease management in western Kenya. I will also share personal lessons learned from my global health work over the past decade. Lastly, I hope to discuss how these learned lessons can be adapted to solving healthcare challenges in our local communities.
