This event has been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Join the Healthcare Special Interest Group for a tour of the CDC Museum
- Network with your colleagues while learning how CDC scientists
merge old-fashioned detective work with high-tech
science to crack the cases of mystery diseases.
CDC works 24/7 to protect America from health, safety and security
threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or
abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or
deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens
to do the same. This tour offers insight into why CDC is headquartered in
Atlanta, what CDC measures in its tobacco laboratory, and how CDC helped NASA
during the Apollo 11 moon mission.
Additionally, see the new temporary exhibit "Resettling in America:
Georgia’s Refugee Communities” which explores how the United States accepts
refugees and asylum seekers, resettling approximately 2.5 million people
The museum is located on Clifton Road, NE, at CDC Parkway between
Briarcliff Road and North Decatur Road, next to the Emory University campus.

PARKING is FREE - YOU’LL NEED a government-issued photo ID, such as a

so allow additional time.
After the tour we will reconvene across the street
at Marlow’s Tavern to network and discuss the tour.
