Meeting information:

Region 5 meetings are held January, March, May, September, and November.  Meetings are well attended in our region and have representatives from the federal prison system, mental health, QIO, IKORCC, ambulatory surgery, critical access, and acute care. The May meeting is always held at the ISDH where experts from various areas present on a variety of topics. 

APIC Region 5 meetings provide an excellent opportunity for networking, sharing practice, and learning. Our meetings are held at different locations throughout the region to provide each member a chance to highlight their facility. We start with a light breakfast provided by the hosting member then have a group lunch off-site. Often we have product representatives that have presented information who sponsor either the breakfast or lunch.
