Each year, the CDC designates a week in November as U.S. Antibiotic Awareness Week. This annual observance highlights the steps that everyone can take to improve antibiotic prescribing and use. This year, Governor Kim Reynolds will similarly declare November 18th – 24th, 2019 as Iowa Antibiotic Awareness Week. The proclamation signing will take place at a ceremony on Wednesday November 6th at 3:10 p.m. in the Governor’s formal office at the Iowa State Capitol Building in Des Moines.
