What a terrible couple of weeks. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, not to mention a huge earthquake in Mexico, pummeled North America. If possible, one of the things that we can do in these situations is donate to recovery efforts. Here are a couple suggestions for places where you can donate:

UNICEF has sent teams to Chiapas and Oaxaca and has expanded their fundraising efforts to cover those affected by the hurricanes and earthquakes. Donate please

The five living past Presidents have started the One America Appeal, which initially responded to Harvey but has been expanded to assist with Florida's recovery. Donate please

Finally - and we have been hesitant to even mention this -  many SHEA members have completed races to raise funds for antimicrobial stewardship scholarships through the SHEA Education & Research Foundation's "Race Against Resistance." Runners have included fellow bloggers Tom and Scott. Not to be outdone, the University of Iowa has put together a team 5k run on September 30th.  We hope you can contribute to this important educational and prevention effort. Donate please

Thank you
