#FF Spring Cleaning for the Brain

If you live in an area where winter equates to cold and snow there really is nothing better than seeing your first robin and hearing the twittering of birds in the morning.  Spring is a time of renewal and growth.  It’s a time to watch nature come alive with budding trees and blooming flowers, but it’s also a time when we tend to shake off the winter blahs. We feel   alive and want to refresh our lives.  Your refresh may come in the shape of purging closets to make way for your spring / summer wardrobe, a spring tune up for your car and removal of winter tires, hitting the gym to lose the extra pounds that somehow showed up or waking your brain with a little education.

As noted in past blogs, the Teleclass Education by Webber Training is an international lecture series on topics related to infection prevention and control. The objective is to bring the best possible education to the widest possible audience with the fewest possible barriers when trying to access it.  Here's the list of teleclasses for the second quarter of 2016.
