Project Firstline: CDC’s National Training and Collaborative for Healthcare Infection Prevention & Control

The Maryland Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics is a proud partner of Project Firstline. 

The CDC’s Project Firstline is a collaborative of diverse healthcare and public health partners that aims to provide engaging, innovative, and effective infection control training for frontline U.S. healthcare workers as well as members of the public health workforce. Project Firstline’s innovative content is designed so that—regardless of a healthcare worker’s previous training or educational background— they can understand and confidently apply the infection control principles and protocols necessary to protect themselves, their facility, their family, and their community from infectious disease threats, such as COVID-19.

Project Firstline training materials and educational activities help to empower healthcare workers in building their foundational knowledge of infection control.
