By Benjamin Flowers: Today, the Ministry of Health and Wellness joined with field epidemiologists worldwide to celebrate World Field Epidemiology Day.

The event, which is being celebrated under the 2022 theme Empowering Field Epidemiologists for Stronger Health Systems,” is a global movement that began in 2021 to recognize and raise awareness of the vital role of field epidemiologists in protecting the health of populations and advancing global health security. The event is also used to advocate for increased investment in field epidemiology training, research, and professionals.

In light of the event the Ministry saluted seven healthcare professionals currently participating at the 11th TEPHINET (Training Program in Epidemiology and Public Health Interventions Network) Global Scientific Conference in Panama City.

“Congratulations: Mr. Jesse Chun, Senior Biostatistician and Resident FETP- Advanced, Mr. Aldo Sosa, Acting Central Medical Laboratory Director and Resident FETP- Advance and Dr. Joshua Canul, Medical Officer II and Surveillance Focal Point for San Pedro and FETP- Frontline graduate on their selection of abstracts being presented at the TEPHINET conference this week,” the Ministry said.

The delegation made presentions in Panama City today and will be presenting again tomorrow.
