Co będziecie robić

I will accompany guests on a tour of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) David J. Sencer museum, one of my favorite places, which is open to the public and free. It will take about an hour, although you can stay on your own after the guided part of the tour. Highlights include an iron lung, a Guinea worm, and exhibits about Legionnaires' disease and Ebola. I will share the history of the area and why Atlanta is called the "public health capital of the world." There are many lunch spots available around Emory after the experience.
Other things to note:
Bring government-issued ID (such as your driver's license) or passport. Wear comfortable walking shoes and casual clothing. You can bring cell phones and/or cameras into the museum. You cannot go into the actual CDC campus or offices.

I would not have even known that there was a museum at the CDC, but for this experience. There were many interesting exhibits and informative bits I want to learn more about now!

This experience was really informative. Had an enjoyable conversation with Mary about disease and public health in general. She brought a lot of first hand experiences with her that I would not have been able to experience if I came here alone. She had a good sense for story telling given her background as an editor and I'd recommend for anyone who's interested in healthcare, disease or public health to do this.

This was a phenomenal tour! Mary provided detailed information for all education levels. She was fun, warm, and welcoming. I left the tour with a better understanding of the importance of public health. I highly recommend this tour.

Mary was very friendly, personable and easy to talk to. Seeing the museum with her as guide greatly enhanced the experience for me, as she was able to provide a great deal of insight I would not have had on my own.

Mary is a wonderful guide. She is funny, personable, and laid back. She let us linger for as long as we wanted at each information point and ask as many questions as we wanted. Furthermore there were 3 English as a 2nd language participants in the tour and Mary was great about making sure they understood all the info. She is a great tour guide as her delivery is insightful and humorous, not at all dry as one would expect. She was also awesome about connecting to the participants and incorporating our perspectives and professional expertise (if applicable) to augment the information she was sharing. For example, my background is pathophysiology on a cellular level with some parasitology. During the guinea worm display, someone asked “why does a person have to swallow the eggs in order for them to hatch?” I said “I can answer that.” and Mary invited me to share the information. Her tour was engaging and she asked for our feedback, “After reading that description, tell me what you think it’s saying and then I will tell you what I think it is saying.” I felt I was treated as her peer and not a nerdy looky loo who had to just absorb what she had to say. Extremely informative tour!

This tour and this museum should be required for everyone. Understanding public health and what the CDC does for us and the world is critical. The tour made the museum more real and interactive.
