The Houston Health Department is proud to locally launch Project Firstline, a CDC-led infection control training collaborative designed to meet the diverse needs of healthcare workers.

Project Firstline seeks to empower Houston’s healthcare workers with the knowledge and skills to better protect themselves, their facility, family, and community from infectious disease threats, such as COVID-19.


Project Firstline’s free training and engagement opportunities include short, accessible training videos, virtual interactive events, in-person training, and tele-mentoring.
