Welcome seeker. All the bacteria. All the antibiotics. Join us on our ambitious multi-episode trek to summarise all bacteria and their treatment starting this episode with gram positives.

At the pinnacle you will meet a new MedConversations member who will share her wisdom that a life well-lived involves hourly breaks for milk and urination.
