CDC Experts to Discuss HAI Prevention in Twitter Conversation

March 22, 2013

Join CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden and infection control experts Dr. Michael Bell and Dr. Arjun Srinivasan from CDCs Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion to discuss how healthcare providers can prevent deadly healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and make healthcare safer.    As the nations health protection agency, CDC is committed to helping all Americans receive the best and safest medical care possible. The U.S. is seeing reductions in numbers of some HAIs, but some infection types remain stagnant.  In addition, there is the emergence of more dangerous, antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Many facilities and states have shown tremendous success in protecting patients from all types of HAIs; CDC is helping spread that success nationally.    The conversation will be held on Monday, March 25, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT. Follow Frieden on Twitter @DrFriedenCDC and use the hashtag #CDCchat to participate.
