Join us for a three-part webinar series focusing on infection control and mass vaccination sites. Cross-pollinating traditional clinical medicine and emergency response disciplines with exposure and environmental health sciences, including industrial hygiene, are crucial to enhancing local and state-level Emergency Support Function 8 – Public Health and Medical Services as well as the emergency management enterprise pre- and post-disaster. As such, this webinar series will feature experts in infection control, public health emergency preparedness and management, and industrial hygiene.
In the final webinar of the series, speakers will identify lessons learned and science-driven operations to securely operate a large-scale mass vaccination sites. Information related to operational challenges including logistics and infection prevention and control strategies will be discussed. Topical content areas will include core principles of exposure management used in occupational and environmental health practice as well as definitions and example applications of engineering and administrative exposure control strategies. The use and selection of personal protective equipment will also be discussed as it relates to the preferred hierarchy of exposure controls used in Industrial and Occupational Hygiene practice.
"Applying Science Driving Infection Control Operations to Large-Scale Mass Vaccination Sites" will be held on Wednesday, May 19, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. CDT. Speakers include Lina Moses, PhD and Mark Wilson, PhD, CIH. Registration is free. To register for the webinar, please click here
