About this Course
The IES offers Educational Webinars throughout the year, purposefully spanning a broad range of topics and speaker expertise. An Introduction to Visible Light Disinfection was a live webinar, now available as an archived webinar and CEU course.
Description: Bacterial infections are pervasive, costly and deadly. Today, and every day in the United States, over 270 people will die from a Healthcare Acquired Infection.
