MRSA data visualization

This infographic is intended to give the reader an overview of some of the factors that contribute to the evolution of resistant strains of staph, levels of MRSA resistance in the United States, and the rate at which new antibiotics are being approved for use. I am currently working on programming the finished interactive version of this that will allow the viewer to see data at the state level.
