Hospital epidemiologist in the spotlight

There's a nice profile of  Dr. Tara Palmore, a hospital epidemiologist at the NIH, in the Washington Post. The piece focuses on her role in bringing the KPC outbreak at the NIH Clinical Center under control via her collaboration with Dr. Julie Segre, a molecular biologist. Ten years ago it would be hard to imagine that a newspaper would publish an article about a hospital epidemiologist. The important role that infection prevention professionals play is finally coming to light.
