Clarice Warrick Educational Support

The Clarice Warrick Educational Support to the APIC International Annual Conference

APIC Indiana maintains a educational support fund for current members who need monetary assistance to attend APIC International Educational Conference. It is given in the name of Clarice Warrick, a long-time Infection Preventionist who was active in APIC-Indiana for many years. She was an active member of the Board of Directors and was always emphasizing the need for and value of attendance at the national conference.

Increased attendance of APIC Indiana members to the national conferences serves to strengthen Chapter 076 and contributes significantly in the development of strong leaders at the state and regional levels by:

1. Providing challenging educational sessions, which enable the APIC member to enhance his or her own personal Infection prevention knowledge and practices;
2. Informing APIC Indiana members about the many goals and activities of APIC National through the various activities and resources available at the conference;
3. Promoting fellowship and the free exchange of ideas with international APIC members / speakers with in multiple areas of Infection prevention and
4. Increasing enthusiasm to participate in state and region functions to further the creative and expert work performed by Indiana infection preventionists.

This educational support is in addition to approved funds previously designated for Chapter officers to attend the annual international conference. The number and amount of this educational support varies from year to year depending on the availability of funds and the level of need.

First time applicants and members active in Chapter 076 functions (e.g., regular attendance at APIC Indiana Chapter Board of Directors meetings, chapter educational conferences and regional meetings) receive special consideration.
