Watsonian Society - A CDC Employee Organization for Public Health Advisors

Join the Watsonian Society!

You are invited to join the Watsonian Society--
An Organization for Public Health Advisors!

In the past year, the CDC sponsored employee organization, the Watsonian Society-An Organization for Public Health Advisors, has grown to its largest enrollment in its history. There are now over 600 current and former PHAs across the U.S. (and a few in international assignments) who are currently engaged in the process of renewing and strengthening the Society.

In 2010, the Watsonian Society received the 2010 Watsonian Society Task Force Report, which made 16 recommendations addressing issues of sustainability and growth for the future. The Watsonian Society has already taken action on several of these recommendations, and exciting changes are underway.

One of those changes is the creation of Associate Membership to welcome all public health partners who support the mission and goals of the Watsonian Society.
