Do you set New Year’s resolutions? I don’t. I stopped years ago. I was often disappointed with myself in breaking the resolution by the middle of January. I suppose some could say that perhaps I was setting resolutions that were not realistic, and I will admit there is some truth to that. I suppose with me being a sugarholic, setting a resolution that has me giving up sugar could be something that leads to disaster… Now that we’ve hit mid-January I wonder how many of you have broken your resolution.
One resolution I never break is trying to capitalize on any opportunity I have for educational opportunities. The Webber Training teleclasses are a great example as I can join in from wherever I am; and if I miss the teleclass the day of a recording, then the presentation is available for me to download and listen to at my convenience. 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 first quarter of 2017.
