TEPHINET is pleased to announce that we are accepting pre-submission enquiries for papers on the topic of, "Advancing Global Cardiovascular Disease Epidemiology: Evidence from the Field." Papers will be published in a special journal supplement in honor of World Field Epidemiology Day 2022. This opportunity was developed in partnership with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Office of Global Noncommunicable Diseases (OGNCD).
About World Field Epidemiology Day
Coordinated by TEPHINET, World Field Epidemiology Day is a global movement to recognize and raise awareness of the vital role of field epidemiologists in protecting the health of populations and advancing global health security, and to advocate for increased investment in field epidemiology training, research, and professionals. The second World Field Epidemiology Day will be celebrated on September 7, 2022.
Formed in 1997, Training Programs in Epidemiology and Public Health Interventions Network (TEPHINET) is a professional network of 75 Field Epidemiology Training Programs (FETPs) working across more than 100 countries. TEPHINET’s mission is to develop, connect, and mobilize a global field epidemiology workforce to strengthen public health systems and advance health security.
