Dolly Greene, RN, BSN, CIC

CALTCM is thrilled to announce and extend our heartfelt congratulations to Dolly Greene for being awarded the CALTCM Excellence in Education Award. 

Throughout the COVID pandemic, Dolly was a beacon of resilience, dedication, and expertise. She did not hesitate to join CALTCM in our efforts to educate post acute and long term care facilities - saving countless lives. Dolly extended her reach beyond training and directly into the realm of public advocacy. She penned insightful letters to editors at prominent publications like the New York Times and the LA Times, dispelling misinformation about mask usage in Long-Term Care institutions.

In addition, Dolly's unwavering support for education was underscored as she collaborated with CALTCM to spearhead the Infection Preventionist Orientation Training Program, a program developed to provide all the foundational information an Infection Preventionist needs to get started in their role. Her actions are a testament to her passion, intelligence, and dedication.

Please join us in congratulating Dolly for this well-deserved honor. We look forward to celebrating her accomplishments!

Join us to celebrate Dolly on Saturday, November 4th, register today for the CALTCM Summit for Excellence November 2-4, 2023 at the Sheraton Universal Hotel.
