Do you know an undergraduate or graduate student with a passion for the environment and an interest in public health? Do you know a student who is looking for a summer internship at CDC/ATSDR? Do you know teachers or organizations that work with students interested in the environment?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Environmental Health and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (NCEH/ATSDR) offer paid 10-week summer internship programs for students who are passionate about the environment, interested in human health, and curious about how they are linked.
