2023 FETP International Nights
After two years of being held as a standalone virtual event, we are excited to announce that FETP International Nights will return to its traditional format of being in person held during the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) Conference in Atlanta, Georgia.
About the EIS Conference
The annual EIS conference in Atlanta is the nation’s flagship applied epidemiology conference where EIS officers share their work in leading-edge investigations, scientific findings, and forward-thinking strategies to inform improvements in public health—all while gaining valuable presentation experience. Participants engage in professional networking sessions, recognition ceremonies and various learning opportunities.
Free and open to the public, the conference draws diverse attention each year from various public health sectors around the world—from epidemiology and laboratory science sleuths and public health organizations to EIS alumni, news media, and prospective applicants.
FETP International Nights
Co-organized by TEPHINET and the CDC, FETP International Nights provides a forum for the global Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) community to share their work and showcase the impact that FETPs make in public health.
