A fellowship opportunity is currently available with the Emergency Response and Recovery Branch, within the Center for Global Health (CGH) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) located in Atlanta, Georgia.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is one of the major operation components of the Department of Health and Human Services. CDC works 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.
Under the guidance of a mentor, the participant will be involved in the design, development, and evaluation of public health communication products and activities for CDC’s Emergency Response and Recovery Branch (ERRB). This training will offer the opportunity to learn about and obtain hands-on experience in the following activities:
- Identify user needs, analyze and logically organize technical information, and transform complex bodies of information into professionally designed, engaging, and effective materials
- Collaborate with SME’s at a high and strategic level and help design products that demonstrate CDC’s role in humanitarian health, disease outbreak detection, and rapid response
- Synthesize data to write summary reports with actionable recommendations
- Contribute to the development of articles, presentations, and scientific publications
- Review and analyze relevant data and communicate findings to multiple audiences, including senior leadership
- Update case studies and curricula for various trainings conducted by ERRB
- Develop and tailor existing products (e.g., case studies, presentation slides, applied learning activities, handouts, worksheets) for identified audiences
The participant will also be able to participate in Complex Humanitarian Emergencies (CHE) trainings that ERRB facilitates as well as CDC-offered trainings relevant to ERRB’s mission.
