This week on Tales of the Resistance we begin a multi-week deep dive on the book “Quarantine Life from Cholera to Covid-19” written by iAMResponsible member Kari Nixon. During this series, our hosts will discuss the lessons of the book, about how people react and act in a world of infectious disease, and try to apply those lessons to AMR, and how we can improve our communication and educational efforts around AMR and infectious diseases in the future.
In this week’s episode, Amber and Mara are discussing chapter 1: #ListenToWomen. This chapter begins with a discussion of early vaccination efforts in 18th century England and what that means for who we look to for medical and scientific advice and attitudes toward public health.
