COVID-19 IMPACT
We are actively monitoring COVID-19 and the potential impact it may have on our face-to-face events. With the CDC’s recommendation on March 16th to cancel events over the next eight weeks for gatherings larger than 50 people, we have made the decision to cancel our April and May EPI and ASC Intensives. If you were registered to attend either of these events, you should have received an email from APIC outlining your options.

We send our thoughts to all that have been affected and acknowledge the hard work many of you are doing on the front lines. It is due to your expertise and efforts that we are confident that the virus will be contained on a global scale as soon as possible. If you have further questions, please email education@apic.org.
