    DREFF Screening of Resistance at UNIBE Draws Over 70 Students and Professors
    Santo Domingo, September 10 2015

    The auditorium at UNIBE filled steadily with students, many of whom were wearing white scrubs for their medical classes. The quiet excitement in the air reflected the viewers’ anticipation of the film. Resistance, a documentary produced by Michael Graziano that explores the over-use of antibiotics in our world, is very relevant to this audience, as many of them attend UNIBE for their medicinal and dental degrees.

    The screening began with a few words of welcome by Cesare Guillermo, a member of the Funglode staff, and Milagros Rodriguez, a PR representative of UNIBE. Through a translator, Graziano thanked the audience for being in attendance and hoped they would enjoy the film. A Q&A session directly followed the screening, along with some statements from Dr. Gustavo Rojas, Principal of the Medical School at UNIBE. Dr. Rojas spoke of his opinions on the documentary and opened the floor for questions and discussion.

    After many thoughtful questions and statements, some of which came from professors in the audience, Graziano was asked his opinion on what should be done next in the fight against antibiotic resistance. He replied that “Future leaders in medicine- like yourselves- can make a difference. It’s a problem for the whole world, but it can be changed. We all need to ask questions, spread the word, and spread the education.”

    The session closed with some kind words from Loraine Amell Bogaert, Dean of International Affairs at UNIBE. She thanked Graziano for his time and for sharing his film, and encouraged those in the audience to do what he suggested in spreading the word. “I hope all medical students at our facility can see this film,” said Bogaert. “It covers a very important topic, and I think it could be useful for all to see.”

    Resistance will be screened at other locations during the DREFF this week. To find more information, click here.
