PE fellows enhance CDC’s response to emerging health threats.

The CDC Steven M. Teutsch Prevention Effectiveness (PE) Fellowship fills a critical need for demonstrating the value of prevention. The PE Fellowship builds CDC’s capacity to assess the effectiveness and value of public health interventions and facilitate evidence-based decision-making. The goal of this fellowship is to ensure there are well-trained health economists with expertise in policy analysis and skills to consider economic issues in public health programs. For more than 20 years, CDC has recruited and trained highly effective health economists through the PE Fellowship, the largest 2-year postdoctoral training program of its kind in the United States.

Application period for the PE Fellowship Class of 2020 is open now through January 17, 2020.
