Welcome to the Greater Atlanta Chapter of APIC Official Website
The mission of the Greater Atlanta Chapter of APIC is to support and promote the practice of Infection Control across the continuum of healthcare. We actively advocate practices that maximize the safety of all who work, visit, or receive care in the various health care settings in the Greater Atlanta area. Our organization believes that through education, mentoring, collaboration, consumer advocacy, and the timely sharing of information, we can influence infection control practices in the communities we serve. Our group of Infection Control Professionals are great resources and have expertise in the areas of epidemiology, scientific method, information technology, education, performance improvement and quality management. Our focus is global and we recognize the values of discipline and diversity as fundamental to our mission.
