Suzanne Bradley, MD

Dr. Bradley has served as the Editor-in-Chief of Infection Control Hospital Epidemiology since 2007. Her career in infection control began with a long-standing interest in the epidemiology of antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections in nursing home residents. At that time, there was little information on the actual prevalence of infection in non-hospital settings or how the spread of these infections might be prevented. As a participant in the infection control community and in SHEA, she was given many opportunities to improve care for many more older adults than she could have as an individual physician in Infectious Diseases or Geriatrics. She has also been fortunate to use her experience in the peer-review and publication of scientific articles to give back to the Society and shape the direction of its journal as Editor-in-Chief.

Dr. David Henderson

This month, SHEA is pleased to focus our Member Spotlight on Dr. David Henderson, the General Planning Co-Chair for the 2012 Spring Conference, Advancing Healthcare Epidemiology and Antimicrobial Stewardship. Dr. Henderson is deputy director for clinical care and associate director for quality assurance and hospital epidemiology at the NIH Clinical Center. He first came to NIH in 1979 as the hospital epidemiologist, a position he still holds.
