National Volunteers Week #NVW2016
Did you know that it is NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK
April 10-16, 2016
President Richard Nixon established National Volunteer Week with an executive order in 1974, as a way to recognize and celebrate the efforts of volunteers. Every sitting U.S. president since Nixon has issued a proclamation during National Volunteer Week (as have many U.S. mayors and governors). Since then, the original emphasis on celebration has widened; the week has become a nationwide effort to urge people to get out and volunteer in their communities.
To each C Diff Foundation Volunteer Patient Advocate, , on behalf of all the staff and the thousands of members around the globe we want to say THANK YOU!
Your continued support and efforts contribute in a significant way to our mission of educating, and advocating for C. diff. infection prevention, treatments, and environmental safety awareness worldwide.
November marked our third year in “Raising C. diff. infection Awareness” campaign and we thank the many organizations who supported and contributed by sharing information with others. We are all working toward a shared goal in witnessing a reduction of newly diagnosed C. diff. cases and “None of us can do this alone…..all of us can do this TOGETHER!”
We celebrate our volunteers and this week stands as a reminder that our daily work sharing information, educating, and advocating for C. diff. infections, remains not only critical but it is urgent.
We do not know when new interventions to prevent, to treat, and protect our environments with products that will eradicate C. diff. spores will become available to the public. The good news is that we do know that there are many positive interventions presently in clinical trials, which give us all HOPE.
Visit the website for updates and feel free to inquire if you or a loved one would be considered a candidate to participate in an ongoing clinical trial:
This is why acts of sharing the C Diff Foundation literature during every opportunity quickly opens doors of knowledge helping others learn how to prevent acquiring this painful and life-threatening infection, treatments available, and disinfecting products with EPA Registered C. diff. kill for environmental safety– to help save lives.
Reminder that there is always information and support available and only a phone call away 1-844-FOR-CDIF
