About the Infection Control Today's Educator of the Year Award


Infection Control Today® is honored to announce it is reviving the Infection Control Today’s Educator of the Year Award™. For more information, please listen to Linda Spaulding, RN, CIC, the 2023 Winner of the Infection Control Today’s Educator of the Year Award.

Infection control and prevention is crucial in health care. From infection preventionists to environmental hygienists, these professionals work tirelessly to ensure patients and staff remain safe from infectious diseases daily. A major part of their work is teaching others about the many and varied processes of controlling and preventing infections. Every person in infection and control is an educator.

With that thought in mind, Linda Spaulding, RN, CIC, infection prevention consultant, InCo and Associates, International, Inc, announces today that Infection Control Today® is reviving the annual Infection Control Today®’s Educator of the Year Award™. The award was given from 1999 until 2010, and she was honored with it in 2003.

The Infection Control Today’s Educator of the Year Award recognizes the infection prevention and control professional who has excelled and is passionate about educating others on infectious diseases. Recipients must have at least 15 years of experience in the field and have demonstrated quantifiable results and positive change.
