About the Event

This 3-day workshop will provide selected students interested in careers in public health to tour the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), shadow a staff member, and discuss relevant topics with senior level officials in the organization.
TMCF and CDC staff will work together with the TMCF/CDC Ambassador to host and organize events to bring awareness of Public Health and CDC’s mission to the campus and community. The TMCF/CDC Ambassador will help CDC understand public HBCUs, build relationships on campus with faculty and student groups. The relationships will widen the pipeline to TMCF member-schools and students for enhanced human capital acquisition. CDC will have the ability to be actively engaged with the TMCF/CDC Ambassadors throughout the year through mentoring opportunities, exclusive TMCF conference session, and available internships at CDC.
