Ep 47: Pernilla Rönnholm, Laura Cigolot & patient groups. On-site pharmacies. Collateral phenotypes in M. tuberculosis.
In this episode, we bring you a double interview with two women deeply involved in patient advocacy and AMR. Tune in to hear the story of Pernilla Rönnholm, chair and founder of Mirakel, an association advocating for premature babies and their families, and the work that Laura Cigolot is doing within the AMR patient group, a cross-European initiative to bring awareness of AMR to many kinds of patients. We learn their perspectives, synergies, and what they hope for the road ahead.
In the news section, we cover an article looking into the potential financial incentives for antibiotic prescribing in Austria, and a study exploring the potential effects and uses of collateral phenotypes in Mycobacterium tuberculosis. We wish you a lovely month of April!
