Hand Hygiene in Context

In an era of heightened focus of the effects of healthcare-associated infections, antibiotic-resistant organisms, nationwide food borne outbreaks, and a looming threat of pandemic influenza, hand hygiene (or the lack thereof) is also entering the national awareness. Are you wondering how one could talk about hand hygiene for 90 minutes? Check it out. This workshop will review the whos, whats, whys, and hows of hand hygiene. Practical knowledge and references will be provided. How much do you know?

Human Health and Animal Disease: An Epidemiologic Collision?

Infectious agents transmitted from animals to humans have caused 11 of 12 of the major global disease outbreaks over the last decade, including avian influenza. This symposium focused on the critical interface between human health and animal disease and considered the question, "Are human health and animal infections on an epidemiologic collision course?"
