Surveillance and Data — Multimedia
Featured here are interviews with experts from around CDC which showcase the work being done to improve surveillance at the local, state and federal levels. Together, we are making surveillance:
- Newer: Modern systems, more efficiency
- Faster: Timely data, more answers
- Smarter: Fewer silos, more connectivity
- Better: Clearer picture, more protection
