Longacre House

24705 Farmington Road 

Farmington Hills, MI 48336 

Join us for a frighteningly fantastic day of infection prevention education and networking! Your ticket includes continental breakfast and buffet lunch at the beautiful Longacre House in Farmington Hills. Dr. Scott Flanders (Director of the Michigan Hospital Medicine Safety Consortium [HMS]) will discuss antibiotic use and Dr. Vineet Chopra (Chief of Hospital Medicine Division at U of M) will share best-practices related to central lines including his work on MAGIC. Your peers will be sharing brief summaries of their original research accepted and presented at the June National APIC Conference in Portland, Oregon. Be sure to get your hands on the industry's latest and greatest products at our Vendor Exhibit, too! Top the afternoon off with a short tour of the (possibly haunted!) Longacre estate and a business meeting.

Given an overwhelmingly positive response from our generous vendors, we will be holding another Vender Visit raffle. In the spirit of Halloween, we will also be hosting a costume contest! Best costume will win a prize! Maybe you can even conjure an IP-related get up?
