What is Project Firstline?

North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are collaborating on infection prevention and control training for health care workers and students in the state of North Dakota. We are excited to bring you trainings that are suited to the unique needs of the working groups that we serve. Project Firstline trainings are free and available to all health care workers, so you can learn practical ways to keep germs from spreading in your workplace and beyond, keeping you and everyone around you safer and healthier.
