#FF New Year, New Opportunities to Learn

We are three weeks into the New Year.  I'm betting for some, New Year's resolutions have already been broken or forgotten.   The one resolution I hope we will always set and never put aside is continued learning.  Education has never been more important than in the last year, not just for those of us who have infection prevention knowledge, but the public, as many of us are learning for the first time just how serious viruses can be.

For Talk Clean To Me, Matt and
I hope to continue to bring new content on cleaning and disinfection and the use of chemicals to markets outside of healthcare, but also to continue to support worthy companies and people who are dedicated to bringing infection prevention education to anyone interested. As noted in past blogs, the Teleclass Education by Webber Training is an international lecture series on infection prevention and control topics. The objective is to bring the best possible infection prevention and control information to the widest possible audience, with the fewest barriers to access.  Here's the list of upcoming teleclasses until the end of March.
