This conference is organized by the Water Environment Federation in cooperation with the US Centers for Disease Control and the Ohio Water Environment Association.
The first annual Public Health and Water Conference & Wastewater Disease Surveillance Summit will reinvigorate connections between water and public health by bringing water resource professionals, public health practitioners, policymakers, and researchers together to share ideas on how to address some of the most pressing health issues of our time.
The four-day program will kick off with the Wastewater Disease Surveillance Summit, the foundational event for the National Wastewater Surveillance System, which will focus on how to make wastewater surveillance data actionable. The Public Health and Water Conference will help develop a common language, identify overlapping issues, share evidence, and explore solutions related to topics such as emerging pathogens, PFAS and other constituents of concern, occupational health, communication and public education, public engagement, health equity and environmental justice, and the connections between public health and climate change.
