Slide 1

July 2011

Welcome to Mayo Medical Laboratories' Hot Topics. These presentations provide short discussions of current topics and may be helpful to you in your practice.

Our presenter for this program is Dr. Glenn Roberts, Professor of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, and Microbiology, as well as a consultant in the Division of Clinical Microbiology at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Dr. Roberts discusses the development of life-threatening fungal infections in the citizens of Joplin, Missouri, following the EF5 tornado that stuck in May of 2011. Identifying the source of the infections and how the people were exposed yields some surprising answers. Thank you, Dr. Roberts.
