Since 1951, CDC’s Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) has investigated pneumonia, Ebola, known diseases, and yet-to-be determined maladies. This elite group of medical detectives has worked to identify or elimate a staggering range of outbreaks – from samllpox, dengue, anthraz, West Nile Virus, and Legionnaires’ disease to Lyme disease, toxic shock syndrome, and Lassa virus.
To hear the real-life stories of EIS officers, join the conversation Wednesday, August 29 at 1 pm EDT. Share your thoughts and even offer up a question for Dr. Frieden, an EIS officer himself.
