APIC and SmartBrief launch weekly briefing for leaders in infection control and epidemiology

Washington, D.C. -- The Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) has partnered with SmartBrief to distribute a weekly newsletter aimed at the existing and future leadership of this vital health care sector. 

“We are excited to be able to provide weekly leadership-focused content to our members," said 2020 APIC President, Connie Steed, MSN, RN, CIC, FAPIC. “Infection preventionists are increasingly recognized for their distinct skill set and insight that drive patient safety improvements throughout the healthcare continuum."

“I think we’ve all become acutely aware this year of the critical role played by infection preventionists and others in the infection control and epidemiology field,” said SmartBrief Chief Partnership Officer Amanda Darman-Allen. “By curating the most relevant news and information for APIC’s members, we can save them time and let them focus more on what’s important to frankly all of us - infectious diseases and how to limit their spread.”

Powered by SmartBrief’s curation platform and editorial expertise, subscribers will receive only the most relevant content from health care trade publications, applicable stories in the mainstream press, and topical news and event information from APIC.
