In 2022, TEPHINET will celebrate its 25th anniversary! We would like to highlight our network’s accomplishments and our impact on public health through the perspectives of our members, partners, and other stakeholders.

For our 25th anniversary campaign, we invite you to share testimonials and memories of TEPHINET to help us tell the story of the global network of Field Epidemiology Training Programs.

We invite you to submit photos, videos, or written stories according to the following guidelines.

You may choose from either or both options below:

Option 1: Share a fond TEPHINET-related memory.

Option 2: Share your thoughts on why you believe TEPHINET is beneficial or valuable to public health.
