c.diff science - C DIFF Foundation

TAMPA, Fla.,, May 31, 2017 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The C Diff Foundation hosts “C. diff. Science” on Sept. 14 to honor professionals dedicated to the scientific research and development in the Clostridium difficile (C. difficile, C. diff.) community worldwide, chaired by Professor Simon M. Cutting, PhD, of Molecular Microbiology at Royal Holloway, University of London.

The free live webinar will take place from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. ET, Sept. 14, 2017.

Professor Cutting, Event Chair and guest presenter, shares the platform with seven fellow scientists focused on their contributions involving the most common pathogen identified, and leading healthcare-associated infection (HAI) – Clostridium difficile.

C. difficile infections can be acquired and diagnosed in infants and across the life-span with a higher risk involving our senior citizens and that is why it is imperative to learn about a C. difficile infection, its most common symptoms, the treatments available, and environmental safety products to prevent the spread of this spore-bacteria and to help reduce C. difficile infection recurrences.

“On September 14th fellow professionals in the C. diff. community, and those who share a common interest, will have the opportunity to gain knowledge from scientists around the globe who have dedicated their professional lives researching and developing new concepts, new theories, and the progress towards a better understanding – pursuing future developments in Clostridium difficile (a.k.a., C. difficile, C.diff.) infection prevention, treatments, and environmental safety products worldwide,” states Nancy C Caralla, Executive Director.

About the C Diff Foundation:

The C Diff Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, founded in 2012 by Nancy C Caralla, a nurse diagnosed and treated for Clostridium difficile (C. diff.) infections.

Through her own journeys and witnessing the passing of her father diagnosed with sepsis secondary to C. difficile infection involvement, Nancy recognized the need for greater awareness through education, the research being conducted by the government, industry, and academia and better advocacy on behalf of patients, healthcare professionals, and researchers worldwide working to address the public health threat posed by this devastating infection.
