We kicked off the New Year on the Outbreak News This Week Radio Show with some interesting interviews.

During the first half, Executive Director of The Infection Prevention Strategy, Michael Diamond and Director of Operations, Andrew Duong returned for an interview to discuss Infection Control.tips–“A year in review”.

They discussed the many projects and successes to include their large global network of experts, writers and innovators and the hundreds of articles and peer-reviewed papers published.

In one short year, they launched several world firsts, including: Open Peer Review, Sudden Science, the Incubator and Pan-Access Publishing, making science free to publish and free to access, with accessible scientific services.

They also talked about the conferences they’ve been involved in and the upcoming conference they’ll be hosting in Ontario, Canada this April on the topics of Antibiotic Resistance and Infection Prevention and Control. Learn more about the conference at Infection Prevention & Control 2017 Canada
