Improving Infection Control Measures

Resources and Training for Health Care Settings

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a wide-range of resources, trainings, and outreach materials to support health care workers in implementing and improving in-clinic disease control measures. We have gathered the most relevant resources and trainings from the CDC to help our pediatric health care members maintain safe environments for their team and their patients.

Upcoming Event

WIAAP 7th Annual Advocacy Day

Wednesday, February 28,2024
Best Western Premier Park Hotel
22 South Carroll Street Madison, WI 53703

This year’s WIAAP Pediatric Advocacy Day’s focus is to push for a hearing for AB 114, a bipartisan supported bill that would extend postpartum Medicaid benefits from the current 60 days to a full 12 months.

Providing a full year of postpartum Medicaid coverage means … saving lives, improving infant health outcomes, reducing health care costs, and investing in the future of our state.
