InFORM

2023 Regional Meetings

In partnership with CDC, we are hosting a series of three Integrated Foodborne Outbreak Response and Management (InFORM) Regional Meetings in early 2023. The InFORM Regional Meetings are held on the intervening years of the larger, national InFORM Conference.  

The meetings will encompass joint and discipline-specific sessions for environmental health specialists, epidemiologists, laboratory scientists, health communicators, and other federal, state, and local public health officials involved with foodborne and enteric disease outbreak response. Attendees will have the opportunity to network and share knowledge, best practices, and lessons learned with other public health professionals in their region. 

InFORM Regional Meetings will: 

  • Support efforts to improve public health through the prevention and control of disease, disability, and death caused by foodborne, waterborne, and environmentally transmitted infections 

  • Discuss strategic goals and exchange expertise about improving surveillance systems and practices for detecting, investigating, and controlling enteric disease outbreaks
