World Antimicrobial Awareness Week: Preventing Antimicrobial Resistance Together – Dodgeball Style!
  • SU Gym, Nancy Astor Sports Hall, University of Plymouth

Save event
What happens when an antibiotic is used to treat a bacterial infection? Ever wondered what happens within your body? 
On 23 November you can become involved in the bacteria vs antibiotic war! Is the antibiotic appropriately prescribed and strong enough to treat the infection? Or has the bacteria developed resistance and is ‘untouchable’ to the antibiotic?
Join us for a UV Dodgeball evening twinned with Plymouth Krakens University Dodgeball team! Turn up in white T-shirts and be painted in UV paint. Will you be Team Antibiotic or Team Bacteria? The strongest team wins! 
This event is open to all with all abilities welcome. Cost: £3.50. Please book tickets via the UPSU website or just turn up at Nancy Astor Sports Hall on campus for a 21:00 start.

World Antimicrobial Awareness Week

Celebrated annually from 18–24 November, World Antimicrobial Awareness Week (WAAW) aims to increase awareness of global antimicrobial resistance and to encourage best practices among the general public, health workers and policy makers to avoid the further emergence and spread of drug-resistant infections.
During WAAW and outside the week, the University continues to promote antimicrobial resistance messages from the UK government and Public Health England as well as from WHO.
We are holding a number of events during WAAW 2022. Visit our web page for details and to read about our cross-disciplinary research into antimicrobial resistance.
