A research opportunity is currently available with the Division of Diabetes Translation (DDT), within the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia.
DDT is at the leading edge of the nation’s efforts to end the devastation of diabetes. The division works with other federal agencies, state health departments, health care providers, and community organizations to identify people with prediabetes, prevent type 2 diabetes, prevent diabetes complications, and improve the health of all people with diabetes. These efforts have helped millions of Americans reduce their risk of type 2 diabetes and prevent or delay serious diabetes complications.
During this project, the participant will be a member of a multi-disciplinary team and obtain advanced experiential learning in the development of various policy-focused materials for diabetes topics. The participant will be involved in public health policy, planning, and evaluation activities in an organizational unit at CDC. The primary activities will include: 1) support for activities that advance the work of the Division and Center, 2) contribute to the development of public health policy briefs and position statements on key issues, and 3) participate in public health legislative analysis, issues management, policy research, and program evaluations.
The Policy Team in DDT’s Office of Policy, Partnerships, and Strategic Communication provides guidance and support for planning, implementing, managing, and evaluating multifaceted public health communication and marketing programs and campaigns.
