COVID-19 Update

The EPI|Lifestyle 2020 Scientific Sessions will take place on March 3–6 as scheduled.

Your safety is our number one priority. There will be numerous hand sanitizer stations throughout the conference at the Hyatt Regency Phoenix, along with self-care tips from the CDC available throughout the meeting.

While we understand that you may feel some uncertainty about traveling, we encourage you to attend as planned. We are acting in accordance with recommendations from the CDC and WHO. We are also in daily communication with the Greater Phoenix Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Hyatt Regency Phoenix. Please consider the following as you travel to Phoenix:

World Health Organization (WHO) and CDC Prevention Guidance:

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • When coughing and sneezing, cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – throw any used tissue away immediately and wash hands.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid close contact with anyone who has fever and cough.
  • If you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, seek medical care early and share previous travel history with your health care provider.

We will continue to monitor the situation and post updates here.

Why You Should Attend in 2020

The conference is designed to benefit researchers as well as public health practitioners and clinicians. The meeting should appeal to physicians, epidemiologists, dietitians, nutritional scientists, exercise physiologists, behavioral scientists, biostatisticians, pharmacists, physician assistants, nurses, school health professionals and other health scientists. This year's conference will focus on Promoting Cardiovascular Health Across the Lifespan: How Do We Live Healthier, Longer?
