CDC Twitter chat on global health threats – February 28

CDCsomedia_logoJoin CDC Director Dr. Frieden for a live Twitter chat about CDC’s 24/7 work around the globe to protect people from health threats.

CDC works to help build capacity and strengthen a country’s ability to improve global health security. A memorable example of global health security in action is CDC’s work with the Haitian Ministry of Public Health and Population and our partners to rebuild and strengthen the country’s public health systems following the devastating January 2010 earthquake. Almost 300 CDCscientists and other staff have deployed to Haiti to assist with disease and injury surveillance, strengthen Haiti’s laboratory capacity, develop and implement clinical and community health training, and respond to the cholera outbreak in Haiti.

Dr. Frieden will be joined by an expert from CDC’s Center for Global Health to discuss the public health achievements in Haiti over the past three years, and answer your questions about how CDC’s work around the world protects the American people from health threats, wherever they arise.

Join the conversation:

Follow Dr. Frieden on Twitter@DrFriedenCDC and use the hashtag #CDCchat to participate, 1-2:00pm EDT.
