ID-CARE representative selected as EUCIC Ambassador for ECCMID 2024 in Barcelona

The European Committee on Infection Control (EUCIC), supported by European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID), aims to strengthen Infection Prevention Control (IPC) in European countries to reduce the burden of Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs). EUCIC works towards this aim by facilitating a network offering resources and knowhow, and by organising training programmes and support structures. To make EUCIC and IPC topics more active and visible on social media during ECCMID 2024, 3 EUCIC Ambassadors have been selected to follow hot topics on IPC during presentations and posters, and share information on social media.

ID-CARE resident, Anna Giulia Salvadori, was selected alongside Sabrina Green and Claire Kamaliddin. These 3 young researchers have been invited to attend ECCMID 2024 in Barcelona, Spain, to attend presentations and poster sessions on IPC and feedback what they learn to their social media accounts.

Anna Giulia Salvadori is a 27-year old second-year resident in Infectious Diseases (ID) here at the University of Verona. Her interest in ID focusses particularly on the important topics of Anti-Microbial Resistance (AMR) and IPC, it is for this interest that she applied to become a EUCIC Ambassador for this year’s ECCMID. She notes that social media is an important way to keep up with the latest updates in the medical world, and is grateful to be able to do her part in this as EUCIC Ambassador, and share useful results and information with her audience.
