WASHINGTON, Feb. 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) today announced that it has been selected by Blue Shield of California Foundation (BSCF) to participate in a statewide effort to reduce healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).
