About the Antimicrobial Stewardship Recognition Program

NJDOH has launched the 2020 Antimicrobial Stewardship Recognition Program to:

  • Acknowledge our top performers and encourage developing stewardship programs,
  • Improve visibility of ASPs within their organizations,
  • Encourage new leaders and find unique initiatives, and
  • Sustain current emphasis on stewardship in NJ

NOTE: Due to challenges from the COVID-19 response, returning stewards will have to opportunity to reapply for their current status through an attestation document. New stewards are eligible to apply for the “Antimicrobial Steward.”
