National Conference on Clustering of Health Events

On February 16-17, 1989, the National Conference on Clustering of Health Events will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Hotel InterContinental Atlanta. This conference will provide a forum for the comprehensive consideration of the phenomenon of clustering events as it relates to public health. The purpose is to furnish public health workers, the media, and others with a theoretical and practical basis for dealing with clusters of health events such as cancers, suicides, infectious diseases, birth defects, or pneumoconioses.

Investigators are invited to submit abstracts of original work concerning one or more of the following topics: public health approaches to reports of clusters, risk perception and public information, epidemiologic considerations in disease aggregation, statistical considerations in the aggregation of events, and cluster investigations. Abstracts must be submitted on official Abstract Reproduction Forms and postmarked by July 30, 1988. For forms or other comments and questions, contact either Karen Steinberg, Ph.D., ((404) 488-4026) or Martha S. Brocato ((404) 488-4251), Center for Environmental Health and Injury Control, Centers for Disease Control, Atlanta, Georgia 30333.

The conference, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials.
