Washington, DC, April 8, 2008 -- The Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) today announced that Rachel L. Stricof, MT, MPH, of Albany, NY, has been named the 2008 recipient of the prestigious Carole DeMille Achievement Award. APIC presents the annual award to an infection prevention and control professional who best exemplifies the ideals of Carole DeMille, a pioneer in infection control.
