Course organizer Christina Hantsch, MD, FACEP, FAACT, FACMT explains, “The possibility  of a hazmat event is a daily reality; drug overdose has surpassed trauma to become a leading  cause of death from injury in the US and is increasing with the COVID-19 pandemic-related  stress; exposure to disinfectants, sanitizers and both prescribed and homeopathic COVID-19  treatments are also increasing. With facts such as these in mind, it’s clear that healthcare  providers need to stay up-to-date in toxicology.”
