Infection Prevention is Our Business

APIC Greater Los Angeles (APIC GLA) was originally founded in 1973, as the Nurse Epidemiologist of Southern California - the only infection control organization at the time in Southern California.  In 1975, it became the first California chapter to become a chartered member of APIC (Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology, Inc.).  APIC GLA has a membership of over 160 individuals, representing over 50 healthcare facilities and industry.  Our members are dedicated and passionate about our leadership calling to infection prevention, providing ourselves and healthcare community with an invaluable infection prevention resource through collaboration and diverse educational activities.  Chapter meetings provide an opportunity to network and exchange information about evidence-based practice and NHSN reporting.  APIC GLA provides a local presence for APIC - the world's preeminent Infection Prevention and Control organization.
