2021 FETP International Nights

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and TEPHINET are organizing the 2021 FETP International Nights. This annual event has been a highly anticipated forum of the global Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) community since the year 2000.

This year, FETP International Nights, traditionally held during the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) Conference in Atlanta, will be a standalone virtual event.

FETP International Nights are an opportunity to share work done by FETPs around the world and to recognize the impact these programs make every day in public health.

Join us for both sessions:

Poster Presentations: Wednesday, July 14, 2021: 8:00-10:00 a.m. EDT (GMT-4)

Oral Presentations and Awards Ceremony: Thursday, July 15, 2021: 8:00-11:00 a.m. EDT (GMT-4)
