Description

The CDC Disease Detective Camp teaches attendees the fundamentals of CDC’s work: the field of public health and the science of epidemiology. Public health is a vast field that covers many aspects of keeping populations of people healthy. It includes, but is not limited to, research, data collection, data analysis, and health education. Epidemiology, the systematic study of diseases in populations, is one of the sciences used at CDC to help improve the public’s health.

Who can apply?


The CDC Disease Detective Camp is open to motivated students who will be high-school juniors or seniors during the 2016-2017 school year. Applicants must be 16 years old by the first day of the camp in order to comply with CDC’s laboratory safety requirements. Absolutely no exceptions can be made to this rule.



Who will be attending the CDC Disease Detective Camp?


Twenty-seven high-school juniors and seniors will be selected for each camp session. Most attendees are from the Atlanta area, but every year they have out-of-state, and even out-of-country attendees. This is a wonderful opportunity to make friends from other schools!

This camp is FREE
