Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, known as MRSA for short, is a public health threat that has taken centerstage in popular media and scientific literature alike. Many people have been directly affected or watched family members deal with these difficult to treat infections, and thousands of North Americans are looking for reliable answers about MRSA to help them deal with the challenges they are facing.
