Prevention of Disease and Injury From Waterborne Pathogens in Health Care
January 20–22, 2021
Sheraton Grand Chicago
NSF Health Sciences & NEHA co-host conference focusing on prevention of deadly outbreaks
Legionella Conference: Prevention of Disease and Injury From Waterborne Pathogens in Health Care, originally scheduled for August 19-21, 2020, has been rescheduled to January 20–22, 2021.
The conference will be held at the same location, Sheraton Grand Hotel on Chicago’s downtown river walk.
Co-hosts NSF Health Sciences and the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) are postponing the conference because of public health and safety concerns due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
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.
