WCAAP is offering a virtual training program based on materials developed by the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC), to run on the success of 2020’s WCAAP COVID Community Pediatrics calls which have concluded. Our partner on this program is the Washington State Nurses Association, (WSNA) extending invitations to Healthcare Staff working with WCAAP members including nurses, MAs, and other interested parties. These calls occurred Wednesdays from 7:00-7:30 AM, twice a month from January to March (2nd and 4th Wednesdays).
