About us

Indiana Coalition for Antibiotic Resistance Education Strategies (ICARES) is a coalition of community members formed in 1999 to inform physicians and patients about the potential harm associated with unnecessary antibiotic use. Marion County Public Health Department (MCPHD) and Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) are joint partners in support of ICARES. ICARES is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

If you would like information provided to your group in Indiana or a free 30-minute presentation about combating antibiotic resistance, please contact Judy Whorton, R.N., M.S. at (317) 221-3022 or jwhorton@hhcorp.org
