TEPHINET is Now Accepting Abstracts for FETP International Night 2018

The Division of Global Health Protection, Center for Global Health (CGH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Training Programs in Epidemiology and Public Health Interventions Network (TEPHINET) are co-sponsoring FETP International Night at the 67th Annual Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) Conference. The 2018 EIS Conference is scheduled for April 16–19, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Current trainees/fellows and those graduating after January 1, 2017 from field-based training programs in applied epidemiology, laboratory, and public health practice are invited to submit abstracts (in English only) for consideration. Priority will be given to current trainees/fellows of advanced and intermediate training programs.

Abstracts should cover investigations or projects undertaken and completed during training and within the past two years (i.e., no earlier than December 2015). We are interested in abstracts describing outbreak investigations, implementation and evaluation of public health programs or surveillance activities, and other areas in applied epidemiology or public health practice. In particular, abstracts and presentations should emphasize how the results of the investigation or an analysis were used to direct public health actions, and also describe or estimate the public health impact.

Abstracts submitted for consideration should be original. In particular, the abstract should not represent work already published in peer-reviewed journals or previously submitted to an international conference.

The deadline to submit an abstract is November 26, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (New York).
