Clostridium difficile Awareness – State Proclamations

November IS Clostridium difficile Awareness – State Proclamations

November Awareness 2017

November is Clostridium difficile Awareness Month and it is an exciting time for fundraising and gatherings for families, clinicians, and organizations. Governors in several states honor our effort by signing proclamations declaring November to be Clostridium difficile Awareness Month in their states. These proclamations are available to you and they can be downloaded for your use.

 

The State Proclamations Will Be Read Aloud At the 5th Annual International C. diff. Awareness Conference & Health EXPO.  The State Proclamations Do Not Sponsor or Endorse the C Diff Foundation, or Its Activities Scheduled.  The State Proclamations Will Be Displayed During the Conference.

  • The State of Indiana, Signed by Governor Eric J. Holcomb, Proclaims November 6th – 12th as Clostridium difficile Infection Awareness Week.
