CDC Health Information Innovation Consortium (CHIIC) serves as a channel for innovative projects in CDC programs and collaborations with State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial agencies.
The mission of the Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology, and Laboratory Services (CSELS) is to provide scientific service, expertise, skills, and tools in support of CDC’s national efforts to promote health; prevent disease, injury and disability; and prepare for emerging health threats.
