International Night is presented through the Training Programs in Epidemiology and Public Health Interventions Network (TEPHINET) in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Center for Global Health, Division of Public Health Systems and Workforce Development (DPHSWD). This year, 229 abstracts, and 100 photos illustrating the scientific work of FETP residents and graduates were submitted for consideration. We are very pleased about the quality of the submissions and we appreciate the support and encouragement given to the participants by their FETP resident advisors and other mentors. Many of the photos that were submitted last year are now displayed in CDC’s headquarters, posted on CDC’s website and used to help educate the general public about the important work we are doing to save lives
