Free ADA webinar offering answers to pressing COVID-19 questions
March 17, 2020
The ADA is partnering with the Organization for Safety Asepsis and Prevention in providing a free on-demand webinar on March 20, with content for the program based on questions the ADA has received from members looking for guidance while navigating the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Dentists are invited to submit their questions via survey.
Questions will be collected and shared with two infection control experts: Eve Cuny, of the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, and Kathy Eklund, of The Forsyth Institute. The speakers will review the questions and respond via a program that will be recorded and available for on-demand streaming later that day.
Dentists wanting to submit questions for consideration are asked to respond to the survey by noon Central time on March 18.
A notice will be posted on ADA.org/virus once the program is available; the ADA News will also carry that information. There is no need to pre-register for this webinar.
The presenters are recognized experts in infection control:
• Ms. Cuny is the director of environmental health and safety and associate professor at the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, where she is also assistant dean for global relations. She is an expert reviewer for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
• Ms. Eklund is the director of occupational health and safety and the Forsyth research subject and patient safety advocate at The Forsyth Institute. She is an adjunct assistant professor at the Forsyth School of Dental Hygiene at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and serves as a consultant to the ADA Council on Dental Practice.
