DriSteem to Host Two Free Webinars Discussing Humidification to Reduce Virus Transmission at Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities

Eden Prairie, MN - April 28, 2020 - DRI-STEEM Corporation (DriSteem), the leading manufacturer of humidification, evaporative cooling, and water treatment products, announced today that the company will offer two free webinars discussing the use of humidification to reduce virus transmission in senior living communities including nursing homes and assisted living facilities. 

Duncan Curd, Global Business Development Leader, will use the webinar to discuss how maintaining relative humidity between 40 and 60% RH, as recommended by healthcare experts, decreases the amount and infectivity of viruses in the air, resulting in fewer respiratory infections among staff and residents. Attendees will receive a .5 hour Professional Development Credit with a Certificate of Completion for all that attend the full presentation.

Those interested have the option to attend the webinar on Wednesday, May 6th, 2020 at 1:00 PM (CT) or on Wednesday, May 13th, 2020 at 10:30 AM (CT). The webinar content will be the same on both dates so you only will have to attend one. The webinar is free to all, however it does require registration.  Please choose the day and time that works best for you and register by using the link below.

“We have seen how this deadly COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected nursing homes and assisted living facilities negatively impacted their residents and staff,” said Jennifer Montville, DriSteem Director of Marketing.  “Our goal with this webinar is to educate facilities management, staff, and caretakers on the need for humidification for virus control.”
