Honored to Participate in the MAD-ID Webinar!

As we all know Covid has forced many conferences to cancel this year but MAD-ID has developed a webinar so we can continue to offer education credits to healthcare workers. I had the honor to present with Kerry LaPlante PharmD (Moderator) and Edward Septimus M.D. to talk sepsis from a clinical and patient perspective.
