Webinar: Clinical Laboratory Submissions: The Bedrock of the Public Health System

September 21, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

“While every pathogen is important for the care of the patient, some pathogens are important for care and prevention in the population. Iowa, like most states, requires clinical laboratories to submit isolates or clinical materials to the state public health laboratory for further testing and characterization. The purpose of this intermediate level presentation is to review the epidemiologic reasons behind this requirement and what is happening with the samples once received by the state public health laboratory. The clinical laboratory’s role in the public health system will be explained.”
