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 since 1975.

The museum is located on Clifton Road, NE, at CDC Parkway between Briarcliff Road and North Decatur Road, next to the Emory University campus. For detailed directions and information about parking and security, visit www.cdc.gov/museum.

PARKING is FREE - YOU’LL NEED a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license or passport, for entry. Vehicle inspection is also required so allow additional time.

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