Barbara Rutkowski, EdD, MSN, CCM - Vice President, Clinical Operations, Advanced Plan for Health

A lot has happened since Alexander Fleming accidentally discovered Penicillin in 1928 after a chance exposure of staphylococcus to penicillin mold.  For his discovery, he won the Nobel Prize after penicillin was commercialized in 1945, used successfully for war wounds and surgery in World War II and hailed as the “miracle drug”. In his acceptance speech, Fleming admonished the world to beware that bacteria would become resistant in time.
