Rescheduled First Quarter Chapter Meeting

Thank you for your patience as we all adjust to an evolving new norm. As a chapter member or a chapter supporter, the board recognizes the need for your safety first as we have moved the first quarter meeting online. We also understand the increased influx of patients and the shifting of resource has expanded demands of healthcare workers.Therefore, the board agreed with the majority polled results requesting to move the online meeting to Saturday, April 18 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. 4 CEUs will be applied for and offered to registered attendees including a multiple interdisciplinary panel discussion on Georgia’s CDI response to the crisis and uses of tele-health technology. 

If you already registered, there is nothing you need to do except be on the look-out for an email with your log-in information included. This information will come from an IT vendor from www.CanYouStanIt.com facilitating the Zoom platform for the meeting.
