Description

For those of us in healthcare, this past year has been very challenging. We were thrust in to treating a virus that we knew little about. At first.

As time has continued, we have become more skillful at treating patients suffering the consequences of COVID-19. At incredible speed and efficiency, we also now have access to two highly effective vaccines to prevent the virus that causes COVID-19. Because of how quickly new research and new findings are being released related to the vaccines and COVID-19 in general, there are plenty of questions that exist. Questions from patients certainly. And questions for those of us on the frontlines as well.

Join me, Barry Inman, a CDC/Public Health Epidemiologist, for a 4 hour presentation that will tackle what you must know today. I will synthesize the growing body of evidence and guidelines so that you also have a greater confidence and authority. Let’s continue to learn from one another. To be our best. So that we can give our best to the patients we see. There is so much hope on the horizon!

William “Barry” Inman, BA-BS, CIC and the PESI Healthcare Team
