As you may know, the FDA recently approved a CLIA-waiver for the first rapid syphilis test (RST) in the United States, Syphilis Health Check.  NCSD, its many members, and other partners have worked toward this achievement for several years and we consider this an important new tool in our toolbox to deal with the burgeoning syphilis rates being witnessed in most parts of the country. 

 

Syphilis Health Check has a number of characteristics that must be understood to make maximum benefit of this RST.  To this end, we are pleased to announce an informational webinar to discuss this new device and its potential application.

 

Please join the National Coalition of STD Directors (NCSD) and the National Network of STD Clinical Prevention Training Centers (NNPTC) for an informational webinar on this RST on January 27 at 3:00 pm ET.  The webinar will feature: 

  • William (Bill) Smith, Executive Director of NCSD
  • Dr. Peter Leone, University of North Carolina and Former NCSD Board Chair
  • Dr. Mark Thrun, Director, HIV/ STD Prevention and Control, Denver Public Health and Director, Denver Prevention Training Center

    Please join us on January 27 from 3:00-4:30 ET!
