WyCOA is pleased to again partner with the Northwest Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Center (NW GWEC) to present the NW GWEC-produced Winter 2024 Geriatric Healthcare Series for healthcare professionals and students!  Topics include general aging topics and those with a alzheimer's and dementia focus. 

Help the future nursing and allied health workforce start their careers with a solid understanding of infection control theory and realities of practice.  The goal of Project Firstline is to educate early career healthcare workers and students in order to provide a solid foundation in the principles of infection control and the skills needed to keep themselves and their patients safe.  These training modules are a part of Project Firstline, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) innovative infection control training collaborative, and are designed to further integrate essential infection control training and practice into nursing and allied health curricula.
