Do you like science and care about saving lives? If so, you might just be a public health nerd!
In 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention launched the Public Health Nerd (#PHNerd) online campaign to mobilize people who are passionate about public health and its role in creating and sustaining a healthy, stable society. The campaign promotes awareness about CDC’s work to protect the nation’s health and safety. It also hopes to encourage learning and increase knowledge about public health. NCEH and ATSDR asked staff members to tell us why they are among the many environmental public health nerds at CDC and ATSDR.
