CDC launches a new educational website on laboratory science for teachers and students

Who

CDC’s Office of Surveillance, Epidemiology and Laboratory Services has launched a new website, designed especially for teachers and students, to learn about the critical role of public health laboratories in protecting the public against diseases and other health hazards.  

What

The website, ABCs to Public Health, was created by CDC scientists and public health experts and contains five teaching portals — one each for elementary, middle school, high school, college and teachers.  Each portal hosts a wide range of information to web links and videos on laboratory science.  This new educational tool will:

  • Raise awareness about the world of laboratory science for both students and teachers;
  • Stimulate interest in students on the variety of laboratory science career opportunities available to them; and
  • Provide teachers with resources to introduce more laboratory science topics and discussion in the classrooms.

CDC will add new information to the ABCs to Public Health tool regularly. To access or to learn more about this new educational resource please visit: http://www.cdc.gov/osels/lspppo/sls/index.html.
