#FF The Last Quarter!

I truly cannot fathom how we have flown through the last 9 months to be on the cusp of October!  Fall used to be one of my favorite times of the year.  The weather is cool and crisp, the fall colours are breathtaking and of course Thanksgiving and Halloween.  Now fall signifies the start of hockey season and I’m not your typically hockey loving Canadian.  I HATE sitting in the cold arenas and this weekend we have 2 practices and a game….that’s a whole lot of cold! 

As we turn into fall and enter the last quarter of the year, I thought I’d share some upcoming education opportunities! 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 fourth quarter of 2016.

Bugging Off!
