Register Now for the CAH Preconference and the Respirator Fit Testing Training

Feb 10, 2020

A Critical Access Hospital (CAH) Preconference and a Respirator Fit Testing Training will be held in conjunction with the Dakota Conference on Rural and Public Health.

CAH Preconference

The CAH Preconference will be held June 3 from 8:00 to 11:30 am at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The focus of this year's preconference is CAH financial and operational improvement. All members of CAHs and CAH systems are encouraged to attend.


Registration for the CAH Preconference is separate from registration for the Dakota Conference and costs $25.

Respirator Fit Testing Training

The Respirator Fit Testing Training will provide participants with information needed to perform respirator fit testing in their communities. Fit testing may be required prior to using a respirator for certain jobs, such as pesticide application. Respirator fit testing determines whether a particular respirator properly fits the face of the wearer and provides optimal protection.
