IN THE NEWS: To celebrate Mother’s Day, the Orange County Register honored six “Inspiring Moms.” A UC Irvine Health infectious disease expert and mother of two, Dr. Susan Huang, was recognized for her achievement in establishing a new standard of care to prevent the spread of MRSA infections in health care settings.

Huang says being “super-organized” and making lists are the secret to her work-life balance, which encompasses speaking engagements in the United States and abroad, classroom instruction as a professor at UC Irvine, serving as the medical director for epidemiology and infection prevention at UC Irvine Medical Center, and leading three clinical trials focused on identifying new infection prevention strategies.
