The Utah Public Health Association has made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone the 2020 Public Health Conference for Utah. This is due to the intensifying COVID-19 pandemic and the need for social distancing to help flatten the epidemic curve. Registration is currently on hold as we consider next steps. We will be in touch as more information is available.
