NETEC webinars are excellent – I say that from personal experience.  You’ll come away with a wealth of information!  If you’re not able to attend either or both live webinars, Video on Demand will be posted here following each webinar.  I encourage you to explore this webpage for previous webinars and very timely, useful information on COVID-19.  There’s also additional resources on the NETEC Respository and the NETEC webpages.

If you’re not familiar with NETEC, here’s some background information:

 The National Emerging Special Pathogen Training and Education Center is comprised of faculty and staff from Emory University, the University of Nebraska Medical Center/Nebraska Medicine and the New York Health and Hospitals Corporation, Bellevue Hospital Center. All three of these health care institutions have safely and successfully treated patients with Ebola and have worked diligently to share their knowledge with other health care facilities and public health jurisdictions.  Their mission is to increase the capability of United States public health and health care systems to safely and effectively manage individuals with suspected and confirmed special pathogens.  Their vision is a sustainable infrastructure and culture of readiness for managing suspected and confirmed special pathogen incidents across United States public health and health care delivery systems.
