  • Spare a minute—make a difference

    You may have seen the op-ed from the CDC Director, Dr. Tom Frieden that APIC sent to all U.S. members. Your support for CDC infection prevention programs, including the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN), is critical. If you have not already, please take one minute to contact Congress backing Dr. Frieden and supporting NHSN, the Prevention Epicenters, and the Detect and Protect Against Antibiotic Resistance Initiative.
