Founder Jeanine Thomas states, "We want to reveal the truth and show the true magnitude of the human loss and suffering from the MRSA epidemic to the public as international health care organizations and governments continue to fail to act to protect the public around the globe from MRSA and antimicrobial resistance."

The international press conference will start at 10:00am at Loyola University Chicago (closed to the public) with world-renowned MRSA expert and infectious disease specialist Dr. William Jarvis (formerly of the CDC) along with Jeanine Thomas, founder of MRSA Survivors Network and will be taking questions from the press.

During the main event, MRSA survivors and family members will share their stories and MRSA activists and concerned healthcare professionals are traveling from around the U.S. in a united effort to raise awareness. Dr. William Jarvis will be presenting stunning statistics in supporting the call for immediate action.
