David J. Sencer CDC MuseumThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is the leading national public health institute of the United States. The CDC is a federal agency under the Department of Health and Human Services and is headquartered in unincorporated DeKalb County, Georgia, a few miles northeast of the Atlanta city limits (from Wikipedia). Due to the difficulty of obtaining clearance to visit the CDC, we will visit the David J. Sencer CDC Museum at the CDC Headquarters. This unique museum features award-winning permanent and changing exhibits that focus on a variety of public health topics as well as the history of the CDC. Two Korean CDC employees will give us a tour and provide a Q&A session.
