Digital Defense: Education for a Safer World Virtual Conference & Exhibition
NEHA's Digital Defense: Education for a Safer World Virtual Conference & Exhibition is a highly informative forum that brought together over 2,000 environmental public health professionals and food and water safety specialists to discuss the impact of COVID-19 and emerging issues and solutions. The virtual conference was held on August 18 and 19, 2020. The virtual conference environment included auditorium presentations, poster sessions, a networking lounge, and exhibitor booths and resources. NEHA thanks all of the attendees, presenters, and exhibitors who participated in NEHA's Digital Defense: Education for a Safer World Virtual Conference & Exhibition. We also thank the Food and Drug Administration for its support of this virtual conference.
On-demand access to NEHA's Digital Defense closed on February 28, 2021.
NEHA members can access the presentations through NEHA E-Learning. After logging in via MyNEHA, members have the option to select the food safety and/or water safety tracks. Each presentation provides a speaker bio and the number of continuing education (CE) contact hours that can be earned. After completing the presentation and filling out a survey, members will be able to download a CE certificate.
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.
