Ebola: People + Public Health + Political Will
June 19, 2017 – May 25, 2018
Ebola: People + Public Health + Political Will is an investigation of the historic 2014-16 Ebola Fever Virus epidemic in West Africa, the United States, and around the world. As the crisis unfolded in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone in 2014, it evolved into both a health and humanitarian crisis. When it became clear that Ebola could potentially spread exponentially, threatening global health security, there was a coordinated, massive response.
This Is Autism: Little Things Can Be Huge
Through December 30, 2017
Autism is estimated to affect 1 in 64 children in the state of Georgia, and includes problems with social communication and other behaviors. In 2017, the Marcus Autism Center teamed with Atlanta-based Hales Photo to document patient families, and to capture each child’s greatest achievement after undergoing therapy. For kids with autism, every milestone matters, and should be celebrated. This Is Autism: Little Things Can be Huge is sponsored by CDC’s National Center for Birth Defects and Disabilities, Division of Congenital and Developmental Disorders, Developmental Disabilities Branch, and the David J. Sencer CDC Museum, Office of Associate Director for Communication.
