The 2017 FETP International Nights will be held during the 66th Annual EIS Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. This event, co-sponsored by TEPHINET and the CDC, gives FETP trainees from around the world the chance to present their work to a global audience of public health practitioners. This year, the EIS Conference will be held from April 24-27, 2017. International Nights will be held on Tuesday, April 25 and Wednesday, April 26, 2017.
International Night is hosted by the CDC Division of Global Health Protection and TEPHINET. The event provides a forum where Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) residents and graduates can not only give scientific presentations, but also increase their knowledge about surveillance, outbreak investigation, and recommendations that will strengthen public health systems and improve health outcomes in their respective countries. International Night also provides an opportunity for FETP residents and EIS officers to exchange ideas and expand the global network of epidemiologists who can be called upon in times of emergency.
Presented by Ndadilnasiya Endie Waziri, graduate of the first cohort of the Nigeria FETP and currently the Deputy Coordinator of the National Stop Transmission of Polio Program (NSTOP) at the African Field Epidemiology Network Office (AFENET) in Nigeria .
