CDC and APIC to Host Webinar on Ebola Preparations

The recent Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa has increased the need for U.S. healthcare facilities to be prepared to safely manage a patient with suspected Ebola virus disease. Mark your calendars for a joint webinar on Ebola preparations with CDC and the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) on Wednesday, Aug. 13, 2014, at 1 p.m. EDT.

Answering questions will be CDC’s Dr. David Kuhar, healthcare and worker safety team lead for the CDC Ebola response; Dr. Barbara Knust, epidemiology team Lead for the CDC Ebola response; and Dr. Tim Uyeki, clinical team lead for the CDC Ebola response. Speakers will address infection preventionists' questions on steps U.S. healthcare facilities can take to prepare for the possibility of caring for a patient with Ebola virus disease.
