Attending EIS Conference

The 69th Annual Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) Conference scheduled for May 4-7, 2020, in Atlanta, GA was cancelled due to timely CDC guidance and the engagement of most of our EIS officers, LLS fellows, and their supervisors as responders to COVID-19. We recognize and appreciate the worldwide public health contributions to the COVID-19 response, and we look forward to the 2021 EIS conference. Access the latest CDC guidance at the Considerations for Events and Gatherings web page.

The annual EIS conference is the nation’s premier epidemiology conference where EIS officers share their work in leading-edge investigations, scientific findings, and forward-thinking strategies to inform improvements in public health—all while gaining valuable presentation experience. EIS officers engage in professional networking sessions, recognition ceremonies and various learning opportunities.

Free and open to the public, this conference draws a diverse attention each year from various public health sectors around the world—from epidemiology and laboratory science sleuths and public health organizations to EIS alumni, news media, and prospective applicants.
