ABOUT THE EVENT
The Valley Fever Institute at Kern Medical will be hosting the 66th annual Coccidioidomycosis Study Group meeting (CSG) on April 8-9, 2022. This meeting will include presentations on ecology, epidemiology, basic science, veterinary, clinical and case presentations.
This year, our host has expanded the multi-day Valley Fever conference by adding a series of educational events leading up to the CSG meeting, calling it COCCI -CON.
COCCI-CON will provide an even larger platform and opportunity for researchers, physicians, legislators, and health partners to come together with the common goal to bring additional resources, identify funding needs and achieve consensus on Valley Fever research priorities.
