TAMPA, Fla., May 6, 2016 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The C Diff Foundation "International Raising C. diff. Awareness" Conference and Health Expo will be hosted in Atlanta on Sept. 20, 2016 featuring world-renowned experts delivering presentations on health care topics pertaining to the most common pathogen identified, a leading healthcare-associated infection (HAI) in U.S. hospitals alone: Clostridium difficile (C. diff.).

"Nearly half a million Americans have suffered from a Clostridium difficile, or C. diff., infection -- and it killed 29,000 people in 2011," says Nancy C. Caralla, founder of the C Diff Foundation.

According to a study released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), C. diff. is a leading cause of infectious disease death worldwide. Previous studies indicate that C. diff. has become the most common microbial cause of healthcare-associated infections found in U.S. hospitals driving up costs to $4.8 billion each year in excess health care costs in acute care facilities alone.

Bringing medical professional guest speakers together, such as Dr. Clifford McDonald, MD from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one of the leading government healthcare organizations in the U.S., and internationally recognized experts on healthcare-associated infections and the prevention of antimicrobial resistance - provides an educational opportunity for healthcare professionals and those sharing common interests.

Presentations will be focused on, but not limited to, Clostridium difficile (C. diff.) Prevention, Treatments, Research, Clinical trials and Studies, Microbiome research, Infection Prevention, Environmental Safety, Fecal Microbiota Restoration and Transplants, Antibiotic Resistance and Stewardship.

"International Raising C. diff. Awareness" Conference and Health Expo will commence on Tuesday, September 20, 2016; 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel - Atlanta Airport, 3400 Norman Berry Drive, Atlanta, GA 30344 (Hotel Phone: 1-404-763-1600).
