Back to School - Education is not just for kids!

I'm guessing for many of you Tuesday was a bittersweet day.  Some of you may have been teary-eyed as you sent your child off to school for the first time (kindergarten or college / university).  For others it may be that the first day of school could not come soon enough to get your bothersome kids out of your hair and regain the opportunity to actually enjoy your morning coffee and read the paper.  The really good parents even took pictures and posted them to Facebook.  For me, Tuesday was just another day because my poor son spent most of the summer in his Montessori program and I plum forgot to take a picture, post it to Facebook and brag about how darn cute he is. Shocking, I know.

Not unlike our back to school focus, September also signals the start of Fall tradeshow and education conference season.  Kids are not the only ones who get the opportunity to learn!  The Infection Prevention Teleclass education sessions hosted by Webber Training promises to have a jam packed fall season of learning.  As noted in previous blogs, the Teleclass Education series is an international lecture series on infection prevention and control topics with the objective of bringing the best possible infection prevention and control information; to the widest possible audience; with the fewest barriers to access.  Here's the line up for September and October.
