About the event:

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and TEPHINET are organizing the 2023 FETP International Nights to be held during the EIS Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. This annual event has been a highly anticipated forum of the global Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) community since the year 2000. 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.
