About the EIS Conference
The EIS conference is a forum for EIS officers to gather together to further the life-saving work of public health. During the annual scientific conference:
- EIS officer’s investigation findings are presented.
- Current epidemiologic topics are discussed.
- Epidemiologic activities at CDC are highlighted.
- Public health professionals network and share ideas.
- CDC programs recruit new EIS officers.
This year’s Langmuir Lecturer is Sandro Galea, MD, MPH, DrPH, a physician, epidemiologist, and the Robert A. Knox professor and dean at the Boston University School of Public Health. Dr. Galea’s work includes the social production of health of urban populations, with a focus on the causes of brain disorders, particularly common mood-anxiety disorders and substance abuse. He has long had a particular interest in the consequences of mass trauma and conflict worldwide, including as a result of the September 11 attacks, Hurricane Katrina, conflicts in sub-Saharan Africa, and the American wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
