The Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists will hold its Annual Conference in Pasadena, California, June 9 – 13, 2013. Pasadena is located at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, just 11 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles. Although Pasadena is best known as the host of the annual Tournament of Roses Parade and Rose Bowl football game, the City also boasts numerous cultural amenities, fine restaurants and top retailers all within a pedestrian friendly 22-block entertainment district.
As the birthplace of Julia Child and home to 400 restaurants serving cuisine from around the world, Pasadena is a real find for foodies. Adding to its culinary credentials, one of only 15 Le Cordon Bleu-affiliated culinary schools in the United States resides in the city. Pasadena is a cultural oasis with 14 museums and 11 performing arts organizations, including the Pasadena Playhouse and Norton Simon Museum. Pasadena also boasts the world-renowned California Institute of Technology, whose alumni and faculty have garnered 32 Nobel Prizes. Most visitors to Pasadena will also not want to miss the nearby Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens which features a large art collection but is more famous for its 150 acres of botanical gardens that have been used as a backdrop for many Hollywood films. All this helps Pasadena live up to the true meaning of its name—the Crown of the Valley. Click here for more information about Pasadena.
