The Public Health Entomology for All program fosters a new generation of public health entomologists with backgrounds in a variety of scientific fields. Meet four participants in the 2023 program, who have learned through hands-on experience at CDC labs and mosquito-control districts across the United States.
As entomology students learn their science, they also must learn to navigate their profession. Opportunities abound for volunteering, engagement, and networking through the Entomological Society of America.
The first cohort of interns, fellows, and mentors in ESA and CDC's Public Health Entomology for All program are learning from each other and looking at public health entomology in a new light.
