They resist antibiotics. They spread easily and rapidly. They thrive in even the most sterile conditions. Superbugs like MRSA are increasingly prevalent, invading our homes, hospitals and schools. Does overuse of antibiotics play a role? Or our food supply? What can we do to prevent the spread of harmful bacteria? Join our panel of experts for a Rush Rounds event in Chicago or in the western suburbs as they answer these questions and discuss how superbugs have evolved, how antibiotic resistance develops and what we’re doing to keep pace with aggressive strains of bacteria.

The Rush medical staff and faculty are looking forward to a fabulous evening at the 23rd Annual Rush Ball, which will be held at Union Station on Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014. Guests will dine and dance the night away to benefit Rush Medical College
Tickets to the Rush Ball are $350 per person, and Rush leadership is offering a $200 discounted price to those who have completed their medical training within the past five years or will be attending the ball for the first time. Reservations will be accepted until Jan. 18.
Proceeds from the Rush Ball support the Medical Staff Scholarship and Loan Fund, which provides valuable student financial assistance to Rush’s medical students. Since its inception in 1991, the Rush Ball has raised more than $1 million towards this worthy cause. Last year’s Rush Ball made a significant contribution to these efforts, and we hope this year is just as successful.
