I Am CDC – Meet the Staff
CDC is one organization, but its success and stature as the most respected government agency is thanks to the more than 50,000 people who have worked at CDC since its beginning in 1946. It is the daily work of individual staff members, physicians, epidemiologists, communication specialists, lab scientists, accountants, lawyers, administration professionals, and countless other disciplines that makes the agency hum with efficiency and productivity. “I Am CDC” focuses on individuals across the agency whose day-to-day dedication and hard work make CDC a better organization, making the point that regardless of where they work or what they do, each person has a role however small or large, in improving the public’s health and protecting Americans from health threats. These videos are also used for recruitment, hopefully spurring interest in a career in public health, regardless of the professional field of potential candidates.
