This year’s conference will focus on public health threats of all kinds.
We will look at preparing for threats, learning from past threats, protecting vulnerable populations from threats, and more. We invite you to submit poster abstracts that relate to this theme. We are also accepting abstracts on general public health topics.

Abstract submission deadline: September 21, 2015.
