CSTE historically hosts the conference in the state of its current president, however due to North Carolina’s House Bill 2 the location has been moved to Boise, Idaho. The program planning is chaired by the CSTE President-Elect and lead by the CSTE Executive Board with support from Steering Committees.
The conference connects more than 1,400 public health epidemiologists from across the country and will include workshops, plenary sessions with leaders in the field of public health, oral breakout sessions, roundtable discussions, and poster presentations. Attendees from across the country meet and share their expertise in surveillance and epidemiology as well as best practices in a broad range of areas including informatics, infectious diseases, immunizations, environmental health, occupational health, chronic disease, injury control, and maternal and child health. During the conference, CSTE members vote on position statements, which instigate nationwide policy change and create new initiatives. Take this opportunity to meet and build relationships with your colleagues.
The conference website will be updated on an ongoing basis, so check back often for new information.
Registration is required to attend the CSTE Annual Conference. Registration will open February 1, 2017.
