About NCEH and EHSB
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Summer Program in Environmental Health (SUPEH) is a 10-week internship for students majoring in environmental health. Interns participate in activities with the Environmental Health Services Branch (EHSB) of CDC’s National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH). The internship is located at CDC’s Chamblee campus and lasts 10 weeks. Interns engage in summer-long projects. They also participate in trips and activities to acquaint them with environmental health activities at the local, state, tribal, and federal levels.

NCEH serves the public through responsive public health actions to promote healthy and safe environments and prevent harmful exposures.
EHSB's objective is to strengthen the role of state, local, and national environmental health programs and professionals to better anticipate, identify, and respond to adverse environmental exposures and the human health consequences of these exposures.
