Project Firstline Rhode Island


To provide every person working in a Rhode Island healthcare facility with a foundational understanding of infection prevention and control (IPC) and the confidence to use it every day to protect themselves, their community, and the nation from infectious disease threats, such as COVID-19.

What we do

  • Develop a training collaborative on infection prevention and control in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Rhode Island community.
  • Provide healthcare workers and members of the public health workforce the infection control training they need to protect our community and the nation from infectious disease threats.
