ABR zorgnetwerk Noord-Brabant, GAIN en LINK organize an informative day about bacteria, antibiotics and all questions related to this, for a healthy future.
Tickets are available for the entire day. These tickets cost €20,00 or €15,00 for students. These tickets are only available at our reception desk. You can also buy tickets for just the morning program (natlab.nl/bacteriamorning or at our reception desk) or the afternoon program (natlab.nl/bacteriaafternoon) or at our reception desk).
11.00 am – 12.00 pm Film screening Dansen met gehoornde dames
What happens when farmers stop feeding antibiotics to their cows overnight, when they no longer give them vaccinations and let them keep their horns? What happens to the soil if only natural fertilizer is being used? What consequences does this have for the cheese that is produced? Jan Dirk and Irene van de Voort try it out. The animals and soil seem to be completely out of balance and the company starts to waver. But then the natural cycle begins to recover. Dancing With Horned Ladies is a story about guts and quirkiness, looking for new ways and finding old knowledge. About observing and collaborating with nature. It is above all, a story about wanting to change something and believing in it until change occurs.
12.00 – 12.30 pm: Follow-up discussion with Jaap Wagenaar, professor of veterinary medicine at Utrecht University, department of Infectious Diseases and Immunology.
12.30 pm – 13.15 pm: Lunch (not included)
13.15 – 14.30 pm: Film screening Resistance
Antibiotics were first produced on a large scale in the 1940s. The impact of these antibiotics, which fight and kill bacteria, were tangible for everyone. From farmer to soldier. After less than 80 years, however, the ‘miracle drugs’ started to fail: resistance infections cause thousands of victims around the world each year. There are many so-called ‘superb bacteria’. How did they come into existence? Microscopic images, heart-rending personal stories and expert insights provide us with more understanding regarding the problem of resistance to antibiotics, how we got to this point, and what we can do about it.
14.30 – 14.45 pm: Follow-up discussion with Kees Verduin, doctor-microbiologist at PAMM. He ensures that laboratory knowledge contributes to correct treatments of patients. Appropriate use of antibiotics has his special interest.
14:45 – 15:00 uur: coffee/tea
After 15.00 pm you can choose between the following options:
15.00 – 16.15 pm: Filmscreenings Catch and Microbe Fighters
Catch tells the story of a near future in which antibiotics are useless. In this post-antibiotic world, a father and daughter have to live in quarantine in their home. How do you explain to a large audience what antibiotic resistance is? How do you tell politicians, scientists, antibiotic products and non-knowing public about the urgency of the subject?
Microbe Fighters shows this problem and the sad consequences in a playful way. The film is combination of fiction and documentary.
16.15 – 16.45 pm: Follow-up discussion with Kees Verduin.
15:00 – 16:00 uur: Discussion with Jaap Wagenaar and Kees Verduin
17:00 – 17:30: Drinks (not included)
