C. diff. Patient, Family, Caregiver Symposium July 16, 2021

Welcome to a Symposium specifically developed for patients, families, and caregivers.

The C. diff.  Patient, Family, Caregiver Symposium will be a gathering of healthcare professional keynote speakers, health advocates, practitioners, educators, thought leaders, and patients who are transforming the patient experience, and changing the way people experience C. diff. infections worldwide


Our distinguished members and keynote speakers will provide insight as to what impacts the patient and families on both quality and economic topics, what role leadership plays in creating the right culture for patient-centered care, and how to identify, evaluate, and prioritize innovations that can quickly touch the lives of patients battling C. diff. infections.

Unlike other conferences on this topic, patients will share their C. diff. infection journeys, providing a real-world perspective on patient experience. Our attendees will learn more from this virtual-online symposium and gain knowledge on important topics that will better aid their care and recovery through tools and strategies delivered by keynote speakers.
