SKOKIE, Ill. – Jan. 19, 2022 — UMF Corporation announced a strategic partnership with the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) for 2022.

The APIC Strategic Partner program establishes long-term relationships with industry partners united in the common goal advancing the science and practice of infection prevention and control in healthcare facilities and beyond.
