Prevention of Disease and Injury From Waterborne Pathogens in Health Care
January 20–22, 2021
Sheraton Grand Chicago
Annual Legionella Conference Rescheduled to January 2021
The Legionella Conference has been rescheduled for January 20–22, 2021. The conference will be held at the same location at the Sheraton Grand Hotel on Chicago’s downtown river walk.
Annual Legionella Conference
After careful consideration, NSF Health Sciences has canceled the 2022 Annual Legionella Conference. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and acceleration of infection and transmissibility of variants, there is too much uncertainty for us to execute plans for a safe, in-person event.
The Annual Legionella Conference has been a successful partnership for several years, sharing innovative and vital information with the public health and safety community. NSF remains committed to supporting this large public and private community in the prevention of waterborne pathogens and the pursuit of public health.
At this time, NSF will continue to focus on its core business strategies, including localized training, risk assessments, and water management plan development for building owners and managers. We ask for your understanding and thank you for your past participation in one of the largest Legionella conferences in North America.
Nutrient pollution is one of the most widespread, costly and challenging problems in the U.S., reflecting a close and complex interaction of nutrient concentrations with human cultural and economic activities and their associated land use. Lakes and coastal zones, often the receiving waters for high nutrient loads, can experience algal blooms, hypoxia and degraded habitats.
EPA's CyAN Mobile App Provides Early Detection of Algal Blooms in U.S. Freshwater Systems
The CyAN App is a mobile application that uses satellite data to map the location of harmful algal blooms in waters across the US. The app provides weekly information about cyanobacteria concentrations in many of the largest water bodies in the country. This information can be used to inform decisions regarding recreational and drinking water safety. The CyAN App is designed for use on Android™ devices and is available for download on Google Play™.
