Life threating infections and outbreaks of “superbugs,” like methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), among amateur and professional athletes and sports teams, respectively, have received extensive media attention and highlight that antimicrobial resistance is a public health threat that is relevant to overall population health and to the health of athletes. In fact, each year in the United States alone, at least 2 million people become infected with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics and at least 23,000 people die each year as a direct result of these infections. Recent articles in the New York Times and other media outlets have highlighted the health threats posed by a variety of multidrug-resistant organisms, including C. difficile and most recently C. auris. All too frequently, we are challenged to treat infections that are caused by germs that are resistant to all known antibiotics. Furthermore, , some experts have predicted that antibiotic-resistant infections will be the most common cause of death worldwide by the year 2050, causing up to 10 million deaths per year. It is the mission of the SHEA Education & Research Foundation to make sure that this prediction does not become a reality. One of the major causes of antimicrobial resistance is the overuse and misuse of antibiotics. Therefore, improving antibiotic prescribing practices among healthcare providers (known as “antimicrobial stewardship”) is a critical component of the effort to stop the emergence and propagation of antimicrobial resistance. Since 2015, SHEA members have raised just over $30,000 by participating as team members during running, biking, and swimming competitions throughout the country. Money raised by the Race Against Resistance is used to fund educational scholarships for physicians, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers who are involved in antimicrobial stewardship clinical practice and research. By providing opportunities to train the current and future generations of healthcare providers about antibiotic resistance and successful strategies to prevent the development and propagation of resistance, the SHEA Education and Research Foundation’s Race Against Resistance can make a tremendous impact on the health of communities throughout the US and abroad.
