Virtual Panel on Healthcare Pest Management

OCTOBER 5th, from 1-2 PM

Join us for this unique 1-hour free virtual discussion with the experts in the field! We'll explore how pest and land care management has been evolving to best protect the health of the people that facilities serve, from both pests and the adverse impacts of certain pesticides – and how you can implement safer practices.

Each expert will provide a brief presentation followed by a Q&A discussion.

Extended registration deadline: Friday C.O.B. September 23rd.

Space limited to ensure sufficient time for quality interaction.
