Pella Regional Health Center is sponsoring a panel discussion next week entitled “Survive and Thrive in the World of MDRO”. MDRO stands for multi-drug resistant organisms. Pella Regional Nurse Emily Haase says MDROs are a relatively new phenomenon and stem from resistance to certain anti-biotics. The panel discussion will focus on why some bacteria have become resistant and what we can all do to help stop the spread of MDROs. The event is Thursday October 20th from 6-8 pm at the Pella Memorial Building. For more information, go to our website
