Indiana Alliance Working for Antibiotic Resistance Education

 

Indiana Alliance Working for Antibiotic Resistance Education (AWARE) is working to reduce antibiotic resistant bacteria in Indiana.  These training materials were created by Oregon AWARE, and updated by the Indiana AWARE Team. Indiana has requested, and been granted permission, to utilize and update all Oregon AWARE documents.  Our intent is to provide educators tools to inform students about antibiotic resistance.

Resources for Educators

Indiana AWARE partners with educators and childcare providers to help students and their families have a better understanding of basic disease prevention, appropriate antibiotic use and how they can help prevent the spread of antibiotic resistance.
