Boots on the Ground: CDC’s Disease Detective Conference
Epidemic Intelligence Services officers present findings on Ebola, EV D68, MERS and more
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will hold its 64th Annual Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) conference April 20-23 in Atlanta. The event showcases recent ground-breaking and often times life-saving investigations by CDC disease detectives.
EIS officers will share details of investigations that placed them in the thick of some of the world’s most challenging public health events. Monday through Thursday, CDC’s EIS officers will present their research findings from U.S. and international-based investigations conducted over the past year. CDC Director Tom Frieden, M.D., M.P.H. will open the conference with remarks on Monday morning, and attend several sessions throughout the week.
During the past year, nearly every current EIS officer deployed either to West Africa or within the United States in support of the Ebola response.
