2023 Syndromic Surveillance Symposium - Registration Now Open!

The Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Syndromic Surveillance Program (NSSP), will virtually convene the 2023 Syndromic Surveillance Symposium on December 5-7, 2023. The event is open to any person or organization interested in advancing syndromic surveillance practice and is FREE of charge. However, the target audience for this event is syndromic surveillance coordinators and practitioners, applied epidemiologists, ELC HIS cooperative agreement leads, and NSSP site administrators.

CSTE has partnered with Kahuina Consulting to provide an engaging and interactive virtual forum for the syndromic surveillance community to share experiences, resources, and best practices, build relationships with colleagues, and take away concrete applications and tools for advancing syndromic surveillance practices.

Attendees will have opportunities to…

  1. Learn practical tools and methods from peers and technical experts.
  2. Form new and strengthen existing connections with colleagues.
  3. Explore strategies to use data and advance health equity.
  4. Discuss ways to increase syndromic surveillance capacity to prepare for and respond to public health issues.
