Course Description

Emerging and Re-Emerging Infectious Diseases

This presentation has been updated from previous sessions in 2020. Dr. Molinari will present the most current information and will continue to update leading up to the day of this live webinar.

Infectious diseases described over the past 4 decades include those caused by newly discovered pathogens, as well as re-emergent infections caused by microbial mutation and drug-resistance. The latest example is the emergence and spread of SARS-CoV-2 virus and the resultant COVID-19 pandemic. The most recent epidemiologic and scientific evidence pertaining to SARS-CoV-2 disease will be presented during this live webinar, including progress in antiviral treatment, serologic testing and vaccine development.

Occupational risks for health care workers (medical and dental) will be featured, along with recommended modifications to infection prevention strategies. Other global disease challenges presented by widespread respiratory infections (influenza viruses, tuberculosis) and blood-borne pathogens (hepatitis B and C viruses and Human Immunodeficiency Virus) will also be discussed during the live webinar.
