On June 11, following a day of informative sessions that include a spotlight on H1N1, a panel on social media and public health, information on new technologies, and the Zapp Lecture, the OSAP auction will feature an array of items.

June 12 offers a full day of workshops and information sessions, on topics ranging from ergonomics to how to write an abstract and how to create clear infection control/safety messages. Optional postconference session offerings are available the morning of June 13.

Tampa features more than 2,000 acres of parks and beaches within the city. The dine-around event the evening of June 12 will give participants a chance to experience the restaurant scene in Tampa and will include a tour of historic Ybor City.
