Abstract Epidemiologists working in public health agencies have primary responsibility for surveillance and devising prevention programs that enable the entire community to be healthy. Surveillance provides the foundation for developing public health responses to occupational-related disease or injury threats. Each year, the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) hosts a conference for its members and partners working in state, local, tribal, territorial and federal health agencies. The conference serves as the largest meeting of applied epidemiologists in the country, hosting 1,000 epidemiologists and promotes collaboration and sharing of public health epidemiology findings. In conjunction with this conference, CSTE hosts an annual meeting of state-based occupational health epidemiologists and other professionals (Occupational Health Surveillance Meeting). This meeting provides a forum for information sharing and networking of professionals working in occupational health surveillance and epidemiology. This project provides support to state, local, and territorial practitioners to attend the CSTE Annual Conference and state-based occupational health surveillance (SBS) meeting.
