NSF and NEHA experts have responded through public outreach and thought leadership, outlined risk management actions to slow and prevent the spread of Legionella in water systems and compiled information and resources for environmental health professionals.

Preconference workshops will be held January 18–19 at the Sheraton Grand Hotel.

Proposals continue to be accepted for expert speaker and poster presentations for the new conference dates.


The Legionella Conference (LC2021) will bring together public health leaders, policy makers, regulators, researchers, infection prevention practitioners, and water management systems experts to discuss preventing deadly waterborne disease outbreaks in hospitals and health care settings.

NSF is a global public health organization experienced in supporting businesses to develop, implement and maintain COVID-19 best practices. LC2021 will be organized following these practices as well as those issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and event planning organizations.
