2nd Annual VCU Infection Control Conference- Images

Yesterday (5/5/2017) we had the great honor and pleasure of hosting the 2nd Annual VCU Infection Control Conference at the Hilton Hotel and Spa, Short Pump, Virginia. The conference was a smashing success with over 160 guests, many from area hospitals.

Invited guest speakers were Linda Green, FR, MPS, FAPIC, President Elect of APIC, who gave a phenomenal lecture of the future of infection prevention. Also, Judie Bringhurst MSN, RN of UNC Chapel Hill delivered a masterful presentation on high level disinfection.

Of, course, our own team, including, Kaila Cooper, Michele Fleming, Ginger Vanhoozer and Dr. Mike Stevens rounded out the program along with a spirited panel discussion and a poster session. Select units and teams were formally recognized with awards for innovation and excellence in infection control outcomes and collaboration.

The purpose? To engage, raise awareness, educate and to recognize the infection prevention collaborators at VCU health. The momentum must never slow down. 

We are deeply indebted to all of the conference organizers, particularly Joni Greer of VCU Nursing Education and Professional Development. 

I am already looking to next year's event.

Images are below.
