Inland Empire, San Diego & Imperial County APIC Chapters Present

“Gen IP”

September 16, 2022, Friday
7:30am to 3:30pm

Program Description:

A new generation of infection preventionists and healthcare partners emerges; forged together through a global pandemic with hastened responses and instilled with strategies to endure crisis. Safely reconnect with industry peers over lunch & mimosas, view stimulating presentations for continuing education credits, and enter to win raffle prizes.

APIC chapters Inland Empire & San Diego/Imperial County will provide infection preventionists and healthcare professionals with the latest information and innovations in Infection Prevention. This program will explore infection control and epidemiology across the continuum of care. This program will feature and celebrate our profession and experiences from the pandemic that have galvanized us in our shared mission to provide safe patient care by preventing and controlling infections.

Your conference planning committee will continue to monitor State and local public health recommendations for safe gatherings and update you with any changes. Our September 16th conference will have a registration cap of 200 vaccinated, masked, and safely distanced participants (likewise for 30 vendors).

All in-person participants must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 for this event; otherwise, will be fully refunded.
