Policy Research and Development

You Have a Voice. Use It to Improve the Public's Health.

CDC works directly with health departments and other partners to research public health concerns that could impact health policy issues. As a participant, you'll do that, as well as immerse yourself in health services research, health policy issues and the relationship between the political process and the health care system.
