Particular relevance was reflected in the reports on occupational diseases of Omsk residents and the nutrition system of the population of Western Siberia. Ivan G. SHTEINBORM, First Vice-Rector, Senior Teacher of the Forensic Medicine and Law Department, dedicated his report to the disease control system for the population of Omsk at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century, as well as the mortality trend of the able-bodied citizens of the Omsk Region. 
The Conference was held in a mixed format: in-person presentations by scientists were combined with online reports.
The second day of the conference was held online and was divided into three sections: «Topical issues of infectious and parasitic diseases», «Topical issues of hygiene and epidemiology», and «Public Health and Healthcare Management». These sections allowed to cover a wide range of topics and present reports from Omsk, Krasnoyarsk, Novosibirsk, and Irkutsk scientists. The most burning and topical issues related to the sanitary and epidemiological welfare of the population became the focus of attention of scientists and their attempt to answer the question: what to do to improve the quality of life and increase longevity.
