Brick #2: educating through workshops and seminars


Promoting antibiotic stewardship does not stop after work hours. Seda Özdikmenli Tepeli from Yenice Turkey surveyed the main problems during mastitis treatment in small dairy farms in 2012, a social project to analyze and educate how to prevent antibiotic resistance in small dairy farms. Seda then did a PhD about antibiotic resistance and currently aims to help mastitis treatment through research. Seda: “In the evenings, I attend seminars in villages promoting awareness of the appropriate use of antibiotics. Also, I am doing workshops for 7-17 year old students for awareness in my laboratory as a volunteer.”




This is one of the entries of the microbiology community’s storytelling contest ‘Building Impact Brick by Brick’. Microbiologists can create a positive impact on society – and it’s as simple as building with Lego©: brick by brick. A march for science that changes a country’s conditions for scientists, a local event that helps parents avoid misuse of antibiotics, a citizen science project providing insights you would never see from a clinical setting. Each initiative, each story, each brick helps create awareness, influence policy and develop the conditions to develop and promote our microbiological knowledge, now and for future generations.
