One of the major risk factors for lung cancer is tobacco use. Deaths due to tobacco use are some of the most preventable deaths, and amount to almost 1 in 5 deaths in the United States.

BHWF Members Hear Talks on New Research for Saving Lives

We are made from more bacteria than human cells. Not only that, many of them positively contribute to our way of life by helping us be healthy, active, and produce vitamins. To address the bad bacteria, antibiotic treatment has saved billions of lives. However, the World Health Organization predicts that antibacterial resistance will be the cause of 10 million deaths annually by 2050. At the Beacon Hill Women’s Forum April lecture, guest speakers Drs. Laurence G. Rahme and Amy Tsurumi discuss how their innovative research in multi-host bacterial pathogenesis and anti-virulence therapeutics work to address the public health threat of antibiotic resistance.
