JHF Presents to Uzbek Experts in the State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Program

On September 12, the Jewish Healthcare Foundation (JHF) was invited by GlobalPittsburgh to present to four doctors and researchers from Uzbekistan's Research Institute for Epidemiology, Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (RIEMID). The presentation was a part of a State Department-sponsored project "Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) - A Global Health Crisis."

The CDC is supporting RIEMID in AMR control and prevention through a five-year cooperative agreement with the group specifically visiting Pittsburgh to learn about: Preparing future leaders in AMR research and treatment; antibiotic stewardship programs; and strengthening AMR capacity in rural hospitals.

During the session, Maureen Saxon-Gioia, MS, HSA, RN, JHF Nurse Project Manager, Aging Initiatives, and Jennifer Condel, SCT(ASCP)MT, manager of Lean Healthcare Strategy and Implementation at JHF, made a presentation on the foundation's past and present work in patient safety, quality improvement, Perfecting Patient Care, and how these initiatives can lead to better outcomes and avoid overuse of antibiotics. Sara Nelis, RN, project manager for JHF's Pennsylvania Perinatal Quality Collaborative (PA PQC) and the Pittsburgh: A Safer Childbirth City initiative, and Emily Magoc, MPH, BSN, RN, JHF quality improvement facilitator, were present to answer questions.
