    Disease Detective - Anne Schuchat - Principal Deputy Director of CDC

    CDC Principal Deputy Director Anne Schuchat has extensive experience in global health and science advocacy. Jennifer Gardy interviews Schuchat about emerging disease threats and what advice for early-career scientists Schuchat can offer.
    Schuchat talks about translating disease detective work into policies that decrease infection rates, citing the successes in decreasing group B Streptococcus infections, developing group A meningococcal vaccines, and halting the recent West African Ebola outbreak. Schuchat talks about her road from an Emerging Infectious Disease fellow to her role in preparing for emerging disease as Deputy Director, and her vision for a future of interdisciplinary collaboration for the greater benefit of global public health.

Tendrils ,

Thanks!

I really enjoy the podcast it helps me understand science language and culture! Thanks!

Wow

It goes on in life how things are so small to exist. Human life is so left behind if you don't take the time to learn, and Microbe World is the first place to learn. Thanks for such a wonderful place to educate my brain.

Wiljennie ,
