Emerging and reemerging infections will be the featured topic of a two-part session at the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association, October 29-November 2, in San Diego, California.

The session, titled "Emerging Infections: Solving the Mysteries in the Field and Laboratory," will focus on the worldwide impact of new and reemerging infections from both an epidemiologic and laboratory perspective.

Eight speakers from national and international health organizations will discuss the following aspects of the public health threat of these diseases: public health strategies for controlling infectious diseases; social, geographic, ecologic, and environmental factors that have allowed these diseases to spread; the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance; the increased need for accurate and meaningful disease surveillance; and the challenge to apply the latest laboratory technology to rapidly detect and characterize new infectious agents.
