Beginning in December 2020, the American College of Medical Toxicology (ACMT) and Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit (PEHSU) will be co-hosting a joint mini webinar series predominantly focusing on safer disinfectant use in the new world of COVID-19.
The PEHSU program hosts a regularly scheduled series of scientific webinars. Their purpose is to provide a forum for regular discourse on scientific issues and to facilitate the development of educational material that will be made available on-demand to a wider audience and as part of their educational products offering.
The "Safer Disinfectant Use" mini webinar series will qualify for Continuing Education (CE) for healthcare professionals through the Centers for Disease Control. Instructions for claiming CE will be provided upon completion of the webinar. For those interested in obtaining CE for this series, please visit the PEHSU National Classroom Webinars page.
