The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) increases national health security. As a national health protection agency, CDC saves lives and protects people from health threats. To accomplish their mission, CDC conducts critical science and provides health information that protects against expensive and dangerous health threats, and responds when these arise.
The CDC Disease Detective Camp teaches attendees the fundamentals of CDC’s work: the field of public health and the science of epidemiology. It is open to motivated students who will be high-school juniors or seniors. Applicants must be 16 years old by the first day of the camp in order to comply with CDC’s laboratory safety requirements. Information about the Disease Detective Summer Camp can be found here
