Sealed Air’s Diversey Care Division announces that it will offer 15 $1,000 scholarships to infection preventionists to attend the 2014 Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) conference. The conference takes place June 7-9, 2014 in Anaheim, Calif. More than 5,000 people attend the annual conference, including more than 2,500 clinical professionals. The deadline to apply for the Diversey Care scholarship is April 18 and winners will be notified by April 25.
“The APIC conference is an outstanding event for infection preventionists, but many potential attendees may have to forgo the trip due to budget cuts within their organizations,” says Carolyn Cooke, vice president, Healthcare North America, Diversey Care. “We’re excited to provide these scholarships so that more dedicated professionals can expand their knowledge, collaborate and build relationships in order to advance patient safety initiatives.”
To be selected, nominees must be currently working in the field of infection prevention. As part of the process, nominees must share details of their engagement in a project or program that contributed to preventing infection or improving patient safety. Winners will have the opportunity to experience the benefits of the conference, including educational sessions, networking with other professionals, and learning about the latest ideas and innovations in the field.
