Candida auris is an emerging global health threat first discovered in Japan 10 years ago. Although few cases have been reported in Texas, it is spreading quickly with outbreaks detected in New York, New Jersey and Chicago. Resistant to most drugs used to treat fungal infections, it is difficult to eradicate. Learn the populations at highest risk, challenges in diagnosis and treatment, and how to help prevent its spread.

The Nurse Talks Empowerment Series is designed to bring diverse groups of nurses together to engage in thoughtful conversation about important topics. Nurse Talks sessions are designed as live webinars viewed with other nurses at sites across Texas.  After the short presentation and Q&A session, Nurse Talks facilitators lead discussion with nurses in attendance at each site.
