Dr. Ravina Kullar is an infectious diseases researcher and pharmacist that has been studying the impact of antibiotic resistance to society for over 10 years. She has published over 30 research papers, been invited as a previous TEDx speaker in the United States and has been invited to speak around the globe about this crisis to educate not only the public but also clinicians. She believes that if we all work together now to solve this global health issue, we can be thriving rather than just merely surviving.
“My talk is worth spreading because if we do not make a change right now with the overuse of antibiotics, the primary driver of resistance, we will be in the infection-driven apocalypse era where microbes will soon take over humans.”
Favourite TED/TEDx Talk
“Unfortunately, in society vulnerability, asking for help and emotions have been associated with weakness, particularly in the science and research world. Brene Brown’s “The Power of Vulnerability” talk has allowed me to realize that being vulnerable is more than OK.”
What does thriving mean to you?
“Thriving, to me, means more than just existing in society – it means prospering not only in loving life and living life to the fullest surrounded by people you love, but also in being healthy from the inside out.”
