VOORHEES, N.J., Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Current education about Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is critical for several reasons.

Gerding, MD, FACP, FIDSA, Professor of Medicine at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine in Maywood, Illinois, and Associate Chief of Staff for Research and Development at Hines Veterans Affairs Hospital in Hines, Illinois.
