Dear NYC ACF Providers:
Welcome to the 2016 FREE Emergency Preparedness Webinar and Audio Conference Series for Adult Care Facilities!
NY ALFA, in conjunction with NYC DOHMH, is hosting a free Webinar on Tuesday, March 22, 2016 from 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm for all New York City Providers, Members and Non-Members. The second topic in the webinar series is:
Legionella and Other Infectious Diseases: Prevention and Response in Assisted Living Residences and Adult Care Facilities
Date: Tuesday, March 22, 2016 from 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Speaker: Dr. Mary Foote, MPH is the Senior Medical Coordinator for Communicable Disease Preparedness at the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response, Bureau of Healthcare System Readiness.
Topic: This webinar will highlight key infectious disease issues facing residents of assisted living and adult care facilities including Legionella, diarrheal illnesses, respiratory infections and drug resistant bacteria. We will focus on how facilities can be better prepared to “protect, detect and respond” to these infectious threats to enhance the health and safety of their staff and residents. NY ALFA will provide CEUs for participation.
