ABCs to Public Health
CDC’s mission depends critically on laboratory testing- not only in our laboratories, but in the many public health laboratories throughout the U.S. These laboratories in turn depend upon testing done in hospitals and laboratories of all kinds. None of this can happen without the skilled and careful work of thousands of laboratory scientists, technologists and technicians.
There are many career opportunities in these laboratories and there is no doubt that the need will continue to grow. We invite you to learn about these laboratories and the heroes who staff them, all working to protect our health.
