Business Sector and CDC
CDC touches American businesses in many ways. Two of the most important ways are by ensuring health security and contributing to a healthy economy. CDC helps protect businesses against expensive and dangerous health threats, provides guidelines and information to protect workers, and helps employers and employees reduce healthcare spending on chronic diseases. CDC works 24/7 as the nation’s health protection agency to keep Americans safe both domestically and internationally.
