Comprehensive Infection Control Education and Practice for Nursing and Allied Health Students

U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is partnering with the American Hospital Association and the League for Innovation in the Community College to launch a new initiative to integrate enhanced infection control content into community college classrooms, with the goal of helping healthcare workers start their careers with the infection control knowledge and realities of practice they need to keep themselves and their patients safe. This partnership is a part of Project Firstline, CDC’s innovative infection control training collaborative, and is designed to further integrate essential infection control training and practice into community colleges’ nursing and allied health curricula.

Innovative Solutions for Hunger Relief and Student Success

Reducing Food Insecurity for Students and Families

Almost half of U.S. community college students responding to the #RealCollege survey conducted by the Hope Center for College, Community and Justice indicated that they had experienced food insecurity within the 30 days before completing the survey (Goldrick-Rab et al., 2019). To help community colleges reduce food insecurity for students and their families in sustainable ways that foster student retention, persistence, and success, the League for Innovation in the Community College (League) has launched a two-year project--Innovative Solutions for Hunger Relief and Student Success.
