In June 2016 I had the unique opportunity to attend one of the most relevant conferences in the field of epidemiology: the 4th Epidemiology Congress of the Americas, which was held in Miami, Florida, USA. NFS made this possible by granting me the needed travel funding.

The 2016 Epidemiology Congress of the Americas convened researchers from all around the world, giving them the opportunity to share and discuss research findings related to the field of epidemiology and present advances in epidemiological methods, with the final common goal to advancing the health of the public.

During the conference as well as the pre-conference workshop, I had the opportunity to deepen my knowledge in (pharmaco)epidemiological research methods (e.g., mediation analysis), get insights into novel advances in the field, and not least learn about methodologies that were completely unknown to me. A thorough understanding and application of adequate (pharmaco)epidemiological methods is crucial in my field of research, which is medication safety in pregnancy with particular focus on perinatal mental health. Indeed, medication in pregnancy safety studies are mainly based on data from observational studies.

During the conference I had the opportunity to present results of my own research in the field of pharmacoepidemiology, specifically results of the Multinational Medication in Pregnancy Study. The 2016 Epidemiology Congress of the Americas represented an exciting platform for disseminating results of my own internet-based project, which is a novel recruiting method in the field of epidemiology. It was a great experience to present and discuss findings of my research with other researchers coming from all over the Americas at the conference, and represent Norway in such a wide international platform.

Thanks for having granted me the needed travel funding to attend the conference.
