World Field Epidemiology Day, celebrated on September 7, recognizes the role field epidemiologists play in protecting the health of populations worldwide. It is a day devoted to raising awareness and advocating for more investments in training field epidemiologists so they can quickly respond to disease outbreaks and other public health emergencies. CDC, Training Programs in Epidemiology and Public Health Interventions Network (TEPHINET), and other partner organizations dedicate this day to field epidemiologists worldwide.
As we celebrate World Field Epidemiology Day, we recognize the vital role of field epidemiologists to investigate and respond to disease outbreaks around the world. Their work is critical to strengthen global health security and protect the health of all people.
