​​​ID Lab Con Has Been Canceled

We regret to inform you that we have canceled APHL's ID Lab Con 2020. While we were very excited about launching this new infectious disease conference, supporting the pandemic response and ensuring the health and safety of participants are the clear priorities. 

We will reschedule this important event in 2021 and are looking at possible dates. We will share more information as soon as we have it. In the interim, APHL will work to identify ways to gather the public health infectious disease community to share information on pressing COVID-19 response-related issues.

​If you have questions, please contact id.conference@aphl.org.


​All registration fees will be refunded by APHL o​ver the next few weeks.
