Quick alert: Congressional hearing Wednesday

Constant readers, I’m on the road again: Georgia Center for the Book tonight in Decatur, 7:15 p.m. But if you can’t make that, take a look at this: The Energy and Commerce Subcommittee of the US House of Representatives has announced a hearing for Wednesday on “Antibiotic resistance and the threat to public health.”

This is not a hearing on PAMTA, but apparently a broader hearing on the whole issue, featuring two VIPs: Dr. Anthony Fauci of NIH and Dr. Tom Frieden of the CDC. To my eye, this indicates that official, policy interest in this issue is (finally, at last) ramping up.

The hearing page is here and the preliminary memo on it is here.
