Please Join us for an Interesting Presentation on Risk Management for Infection Control during Healthcare Construction.  This presentation is GBCI Approved for 1 CE Hour and AIA Approved for 1 LU/HSW.  Along with public awareness, the fact cannot be understated that the emergence of both air and water-borne pathogens, MRSA and C Diff are serious factors in Healthcare.  The importance of employee, patient safety, and exposure to these pathogens has become a major concern.  The risk is even greater during construction.  This presentation will address the following:

  • How Healthcare Associated Infections are changing the safety and financial factor for Hospitals
  • How Construction contributes to Healthcare Acquired Infections and adds risk to the project
  • Healthcare organization goals – Do you as a Professional meet them?

Our Presenting Speaker for this meeting will be Ms. Marlene Linders!  Ms. Linders is the President and CEO of PHILDERS GROUP INTERNATIONAL INC., a healthcare consulting firm. She holds a degree in architecture, nursing science and a Master’s degree in science for clinical psychology. She has been a long time member of ASHRAE and a National Speaker on Infectious Diseases.  Ms. Linders is also the Executive Director for The Linders Health Institute™ which addresses safety, compliance and exposure risks during construction of healthcare buildings. She has several years of extensive expertise in development and understanding of construction and design for building systems. She has worked on designing high-risk environments such as Surgical Suites, Long Term Care, and Transplant for several Level One trauma centers costing in excess of $4 billion dollars. Her former company, PLI Inc, wrote the first Indoor Air Quality online curriculum course for the University of Florida Rinker School of Construction. Ms. Linders has written several white papers and articles on pandemics and emerging infectious diseases regarding the built environment, including a series on infection control for Kimberly Clark Worldwide.

Come Join us for a Great Evening with ASHRAE and learn something about Infection Control!
