Sarah Grueber, R.R.T, C.I.C., F.A.P.I.C., and Eileen Phillips, R.N., C.I.C., F.A.P.I.C., infection control professionals at University of Missouri Health Care, recently were named fellows of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC).

The APIC fellows program recognizes exemplary members for being advanced practitioners of infection prevention and leaders in their field. Fellows must demonstrate superior competency in infection prevention through certification, length of practice, academic degrees, publications and presentations, and other activities that demonstrate their experience and leadership.

“I’m very proud of my colleagues for being named fellows of the APIC,” said Linda Johnson, R.N., C.I.C., F.A.P.I.C., manager of Infection Prevention and Control at MU Health Care. “It’s not only a great honor to be counted among the best in your field, but also to be part of a patient care team that saves lives through reducing infections.”

The APIC is the leading professional association in the United States for infection prevention with more than 15,000 members.
