The CDC collaborates to create the expertise, information, and tools that people and communities need to protect their health – through health promotion; prevention of disease, injury and disability; and preparedness for new health threats. The CDC ORISE programs are considered a valuable human capital and workforce development tool, which provide educational experiences and training in public health as a means to introduce highly motivated participants to potential public health careers.
