I Am CDC - Sharon McAleer

I've been at CDC since May of 2000. I always felt my path to CDC was accidental, but over the years, I've come to realize, it's perfect for me. I grew up in Ireland and was a bit of a sports nut.... big into Gaelic football, running, cycling, and swimming-I still love that stuff! When I was a student at Queens University in Belfast, I never imagined that I would end up working for one of th...

I Am CDC - CAPT Casey Barton Behravesh

I’ve been at CDC since 2006. I’m a Captain in the United States Public Health Service, a veterinarian, and an epidemiologist. So why is a veterinarian working for a human health agency? That’s because of One Health, the close connection between human health, animal health, and the health of our shared environment. People, animals, and the environment face many of the same health challenges, so ...

I Am CDC - Kevin and Kristie Clarke

Kevin and I met at CDC, as members of the Epidemic Intelligence Service Class of 2011. After six months, I got up my nerve to ask her out. Our first date was to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, which is still our special place. We have a lot in common... we're both pediatricians, ...we're inspired by CDC's public health mission,... we're medical officers in the U.S. Public Health Service and scie...

I Am CDC - Kimberly Nguyen

I joined CDC in 2010, after working for the Connecticut Department of Public Health, because I wanted to protect people’s health in the whole country, not just in one state. Currently, I work for the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. We assess child and adult vaccination coverage in the United States. Vaccinations are one of the top ten great public health achievements ...

I Am CDC - Elizabeth Burns

People are usually surprised to learn that CDC has an Injury Center. They’ve seen Contagion or Outbreak and know we do infectious disease but they don’t realize the huge burden injury plays on Americans’ lives. I work on the older adult falls team. More than one in four Americans over 65 falls each year. Comments on this video are allowed in accordance with our comment policy: http://www.cdc...

I Am CDC - Catherine Jamal

Hi! I'm a Digital Media Lead here at CDC. I grew up in Atlanta and, like most locals, was in awe of this exciting, larger-than-life place that I drove by nearly every day. I joined CDC 16 years ago, after graduating with degrees in computer science and psychology. One of my first jobs was helping CDC move into the digital age. It has been awesome! Over the years, I've helped create web sites, s...

I Am CDC - Diana Toomer

When I began my CDC journey in 1990, I had no idea my love for communications and my interest in biology would merge in such a wonderful way. As a health communication specialist, I develop messages for CDC-INFO agents to use when responding to questions from the public and healthcare professionals. CDC experts provide written answers to many anticipated health questions, and CDC-INFO develops ...

I Am CDC - Jessica Streit

I joined CDC in 2005 as a Psychology Technician with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, or NIOSH. I wasn’t someone who always knew public health was for me. I really even didn’t know about NIOSH until my graduate school advisor matched me with a team of stress researchers who needed an assistant. Helping those NIOSH experts opened my eyes to the serious ways work can aff...

I Am CDC - Alexis Peterson

Almost 4 years ago, I landed at CDC in the Injury Center in an unconventional way. I’ve always loved science, and specifically the interplay between the brain and human behavior. Luckily for me, I learned early on that the best scientists are often those who don’t limit their interests to a narrow field of research, but rather look for multiple approaches in areas to work in. So I left academia...

I work for the Division of Global Migration and Quarantine as the Officer-in-Charge of the CDC Atlanta Quarantine Station at Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the world’s busiest airport. I’m a public health first responder, leading and coordinating activities that prevent the introduction and spread of communicable diseases into the U.S., 24/7. We respond to illnesses and death...

I Am CDC - Scott Scales

Since 2009, I’ve had the pleasure of working at CDC. Before that, I had a 27-year adventure with the United States Army where I was fortunate enough to travel the world, meet the love of my life, and fly some of the world’s best helicopters. At CDC, after two years with the Division of Emergency Operations, I was recommended for a detail assignment to the CDC Office of the Director and was ulti...

I Am CDC Zarecki-Brown-Newsome

I’ve been at CDC for 10 years. I work for the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, leading a project that works to identify the best ways to care for people with spina bifida across the lifespan. I work for the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control where I translate CDC guidance into training materials that educate healthcare providers about safer, more e...

I Am CDC - Nelly Mejia - (Español)

Soy economista en el Centro de Salud Global de los CDC. Mi interés en economía comenzó cuando era niña y quería combatir la pobreza. Me interesé en salud cuando estaba estudiando mi doctorado en RAND y colaboré en estudios que buscaban mejorar la salud de la población a través de la salud preventiva. En CDC, analizo datos para ver si una política o una intervención de vacunación en p...
