Tuberculosis on the Move: New Threats, New Treatments, New Tests
Join the Metropolitan Washington Association of Occupational Heath Nurses on September 17, 2014, for our Continuing Education Dinner Lecture, presented by Oxford Immunotec, to learn about the changes in TB testing and TB epidemiology from Kathy Dayvault, RN, MPH, COHN-S/CM. If you think the Mantoux Tuberculosis Skin test is the "gold standard," then you are a decade behind the times! Kathy Dayvault has presented many educational programs to OHNs. Kathy's wealth of experience in Occupational Health and Case Management spans 35 years and five states; most recently she was the Director of Occupational Health at Piedmont Health System in Atlanta, Georgia. An author of several published articles on disability case management, Kathy comes to us courtesy of Oxford Immunotec. The lecture will begin at 6:30 PM at the National Geographic Building, 1600 M Street NW, Washington, DC, 20036. Registration is $ 10 for AAOHN members, $ 15.00 for non-members, and includes a light supper from The Corner Bakery. Supper and networking begins at 5:30 PM. To register, visit MWAOHN website.
