NSF Health Sciences, an NSF International company, and the National Environmental Health Association will bring together professionals from a wide variety of industries, including health care, to discuss the growing concern of Legionella outbreaks at the third annual Legionella Conference, to be held in August 2020 in Chicago, Illinois.
The 2020 Legionella Conference theme, Prevention of Disease and Injury From Waterborne Pathogens in Health Care, centers on how hospitals, water utilities, health departments, industry and regulators can work together to identify best practices for prevention of disease in hospitals, long-term care centers and skilled nursing homes. Join the conversation on how we can work toward safer health care facilities.
To avoid a dramatic increase in Legionnaires disease, there are several actions that building owners should take now and prior to returning buildings to full service to reduce hazardous conditions caused by the COVID-19 low building occupancy rates.
NSF Health Sciences and the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) are now accepting proposals for expert speaker and research poster presentations for this year’s Legionella Conference to be held in Chicago Aug. 19-21.
