CDC’s Career Paths to Public Health (CPP) website is a roadmap for students and teachers interested in learning and teaching about epidemiology and public health sciences (EPHS).
Here you will find information on CDC workshops, activities, and lesson plans as well as other resources. These materials are designed to introduce the future public health workforce to EPHS, to promote health literacy and to provide examples of how math and science are used every day to solve public health problems confronting our world.
CDC's online collection of teaching and reference materials for students and teachers, designed to introduce the science of public health to elementary through high school students.
Excellence in Curriculum Innovation through Teaching Epidemiology (EXCITE) is an archive site. A “Teacher Roadmap” will replace EXCITE in Spring of 2016. The “Teacher Roadmap” will include education standards and a course framework for teaching epidemiology and public health at the middle and high school level. Information on CDC’s teacher training—the Science Ambassador Workshop, epidemiology and public health lesson plans, and other resources can be found at the Career Paths to Public Health website.
CDC's Science Ambassador Workshop connects teachers with CDC scientists to develop lesson plans to use in schools across the country.
These plans are designed to be for middle and high school classrooms and meet Next Generation Science. They bring relevant public health topics into the classroom and challenge students to think about science and mathematics in a new way.
