CDC Releases Videos on Reducing the Risk of Legionella

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently hosted a Public Health Grand Rounds session focused on Legionnaires’ disease. During this session, four experts discussed approaches to preventing Legionnaires’ disease associated with buildings at increased risk and where we are with uptake of water management programs to reduce the risk of Legionella. A recording of these presentations is now available on CDC’s website.

In addition to the main presentations, there is a short “Beyond the Data” video now available where an expert from the Veterans Health Administration is interviewed about Legionnaires’ disease. One can view both videos here.
