4Message from the President

​Welcome to NACMID's new and improved website! It is here that we will keep you up to date on NACMID events and news, bugs that are wreaking havoc on society, cool videos, and anything else you may be interested in.

Our mission is to keep clinical microbiologists up to date on the ever changing technologies, organism nomenclature, resistance patterns, and emerging pathogens that we come across in our field. From MERS-CoV in the Arabian Peninsula to Chikungunya virus in the Caribbean and Zika Fever in New Caledonia, it is more and more necessary to educate ourselves as world-wide travel has become the norm. Just this week Ebola landed in the U.S for the first time in history. Pathogens are crossing geographical boundaries more quickly than ever and we must work even harder to keep up with them.

Please save the date for NACMID's next annual meeting to be held June 15-16, 2015 at the Holiday Inn in Boxborough, MA. A preliminary program will be coming soon. We hope to see you all there!

-Rebecca Zaffini, NACMID President

Welcome to NACMID's new and improved website! It is here that we would like to keep you up to date on NACMID events and news, bugs that are wreaking havoc on society, cool videos, and anything else we think you may be interested in.

On the flip side, we are interested in YOU! Have a humorous anecdote from the lab bench? Discover a new bacteria? Publish a paper? Provide a tip on passing a CAP inspection? Go to our Contact page and let us know - we want to hear from you and share your stories on our website.

Because this is our chance to thank you for providing quality patient care day and night. This is our chance to celebrate the Microbiologists that work around the clock, through blizzards, hurricanes, and city lock-downs. Bacteria don't sleep, so why should we? And for that...

we THANK YOU!

-Rebecca Zaffini, March 2014
