Project Firstline

Project Firstline Logo


The Hawaii Department of Health has partnered with Mountain Pacific Quality Health to implement the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention national training collaborative, Project Firstline to our healthcare workers. Every healthcare worker deserves to understand infection control principles and protocols and feel they can confidently apply them to protect themselves, their patients, their family and their community. CDC’s training collaborative, is designed to help every healthcare worker gain that knowledge and confidence.
