April CEU meeting at Piedmont--cancelled
Due to the COVID-19 virus, our April meeting will be cancelled. If you haven't already heard, NTI has also been cancelled by the national organization.
I anticipate that the next several weeks will be difficult and exhausting for us all, but if you have any extra time and energy, there is an opportunity to volunteer with the Georgia Department of Public Health. There is a call center on the 3rd floor Emergency Operations Center Briefing Room at 2 Peachtree Street, Atlanta, GA 30303, which is used to answer calls from the public regarding COVID-19. Volunteers will answer questions over the phone (you will have a FAQ document to guide you), and a medical epidemiologist will also be available to assist. If you are interested in assisting with this effort, please go to the following link https://ga.readyop.com/fs/4cKl/79de
For the most up-to-date information on the COVID-19 situation, please be sure to visit the CDC, WHO, AACN, and SCCM websites. The Society of Crtical Care Medicine has also made some of their disaster medicine resources available for free here.
