Notice: Cancellation of the 69th Annual EIS Conference and FETP International Nights

Dear TEPHINET Community,

We are writing to alert you to the cancellation of the 69th annual EIS Conference previously scheduled for May 4-7, 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. Unfortunately, the cancellation of the EIS Conference also means that TEPHINET and our CDC planning partners will be cancelling FETP International Nights, previously scheduled for the evenings of May 5-6. These decisions are consistent with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendation (as of March 15) to cancel or postpone in-person gatherings of 50 people or more throughout the United States until at least May 10.

While we are disappointed to cancel what was to be the celebration of the 20th anniversary of FETP International Night, we want to express our deepest appreciation to EIS and FETP officers/trainees and alumni currently contributing to the COVID-19 response around the world. When this crisis is over, we look forward to learning much more about your efforts at future conferences.

We look forward to seeing you all at the EIS Conference and FETP International Night in 2021.

Sincerely,

CDC/TEPHINET FETP International Nights Planning Committee
