The deadline for applications is April 20, 2009.

The National Center for Health Marketing’s Global Health Odyssey is
pleased to offer the 2009 CDC Disease Detective Camp (DDC). DDC is an
academic day camp for students who will be high school juniors and
seniors during the 2009-2010 school year. Over the course of a week,
campers will take on the roles of disease detectives and learn how CDC
safeguards the nation’s health. Activities vary by day and may include
short lectures by CDC experts, a mock press conference in the CDC
press room, a look behind the scenes of CDC, and other hands-on
activities. Campers will learn the methodologies used to track
diseases in populations, basic lab procedures used in an infectious
disease lab, and how public health research is applied at CDC.

The CDC Disease Detective Camp will be offered twice during the summer
of 2009. Both sessions will offer the same activities and will last from 9:00AM-4:00PM. There is no cost associated with attending the camp, but each camper is responsible for bringing or buying his/her lunch.

For more information on the camp and the application process, please
