We can be proud of the Academy's global educational philanthropic progress as another successful webinar concluded Wednesday, September 28, involving 251 scientists from 32 countries (Albania, Armenia, Austria, Belgium, Bermuda, Brazil, Cambodia, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, North Macedonia, Panama, the Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Tanzania, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States). Many colleagues participated past midnight, their time!

We would like to thank the AAFS honored speakers and attendee members who donated their time over the past two years for their support of the GCFS with the United Nations, Department of Justice (DOJ) International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance Program (ICITAP), and other university/academic programs around the world. We are earning our way toward being a part of the DOJ's educational fabric as the AAFS' collaboration with the DOJ's ICITAP is now listed in the DOJ's educational catalog. We are grateful for the ICITAP collaboration and the opportunity to give back.
