This Chinese Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) resident, was photographing 43-types of puffer fish, while investigating an outbreak of tetrodotoxin poisoning in August 2012, in Guangdong, a coastal province of southeast China. The photographs were created in order to help consumers identify the contaminated puffer fish. The FETP trains workers on the ground to help countries build sustainable capacity for detecting and responding to health threats. The program develops in-country expertise so that disease outbreaks can be detected locally and prevented from spreading.
