Groundbreaking CDC Pilot is Calling All Students

CDCOLOGY is calling all university students. CDCOLOGY  is a groundbreaking pilot through Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and supported by HHSIgnite (beta). The pilot uses CDC staff-created, student-solved, virtual microtasks to tackle public health challenges at CDC. As they complete the short microtasks, the student solvers (CDCOLOGISTS), gain valuable educational experience, insight, and exposure to CDC's work and the field of public health. Tasks span multiple fields and skill sets, including: preparedness, lab sciences, graphic design, policy, research, and data analysis. However, the engagement of public health students – at both the undergraduate and graduate levels – is a great starting point that will yield positive results in regards to student and staff interest and involvement.
