Entitled, “USPHS Takes Part in Comfort Mission”, this image was captured by CDC Chief Environmental Health Officer, Craig A. Shepherd, RS, MPH, DAAS (CAPT, USPHS). The image depicted CDC Veterinarian Officer, LCDR Gregg Langham (USPHS), while he was canvassing a rural community in Peru, walking from home to home, vaccinating pigs with hog cholera vaccine. Several young Peruvian boys, who were fascinated with this process, watched LCDR Langham at work. Langham was on assignment aboard the USNS Comfort, which sailed on a 120-day goodwill mission, to 12 Latin American countries, and the Caribbean. This photo earned CAPT Shepherd the Second Place award in the 2008 CDC Connects Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of People-International.
