NOTICE: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 (also known as the novel coronavirus) response, CDC will be suspending our Ambassador Program and postponing participation in all related events until further notice. This includes but may not be limited to ambassador participation at community events and activities taking place in schools, in collaboration with faith-based organizations, and other community outreach programs.

This decision was not taken lightly and has been made with an abundance of caution in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our local communities and the greater community across our nation and is based on current CDC guidance regarding mass gatherings. For more information, visit Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

Do you want CDC to participate in your career day, health fair, or facilitate a handwashing demonstration at your community, organization, or school event?

The CDC Ambassador program empowers staff to share CDC’s 24/7 message of saving lives and protecting people from health threats at dozens of events, including career days/STEM events, health fairs, and handwashing demonstrations. If you are interested in CDC participating in one of these events, you do not need to complete a Speakers Request. Please send your event details to Community Relations. A representative will review your request and contact you.

  • Career days/ STEM events: Ambassador offers an overview of CDC, a presentation about their specialty area, and hard copy or interactive resources.
  • Health fairs: Ambassador provides public health materials and other interactive resources on various health topics.
  • Handwashing Demonstrations: Ambassador gives a presentation on the importance of handwashing, information on healthy behaviors, and GloGerm kit demonstration.
