Lita Jo is the system manager for infection prevention at OhioHealth in Columbus, Ohio.

This group provides expert recommendations on HAI mandatory public reporting. Her husband (Alan) and her have three grown sons and were empty nesters for about a minute until the youngest one moved back in. The highlight of her weekend is running after my very mobile toddler granddaughter, Evelyn. Lita Jo enjoys reading and any place that involves sunshine and a beach. She loves the outdoors and thinks wireless internet access is the best thing ever invented. If it is above 50° F you’ll likely find Lita Jo, computer in hand, working outside on her front porch.
