Zambia Advance FETP Celebrates Graduation of Cohort V
In a momentous event on September 21, 2023, the Zambia Advanced Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) at Levy Mwanawasa Medical University (LMMU) proudly witnessed the graduation of its fifth cohort. This remarkable occasion marked the culmination of extensive training for nine individuals who are now equipped to champion public health in Zambia and beyond.
A noteworthy highlight of this graduation is the international camaraderie that flourished within the program.
