Do you want to be a part of current conversations about public health and preventing epidemics?

Volunteer in our New exhibit, Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World, and help visitors understand how viruses such as Ebola, Zika, and Influenza reveal an intricate connection between humans, animals, and their environments. Learn to facilitate conversations on challenging topics and engage in fact-based discussions with visitors about their role in prevention. Use interactive media to educate visitors on viruses that can "spill over" to humans and spread around the world.

Combine your interest in infectious disease outbreaks with expert-led training to increase visitor awareness of global health and efforts to predict, respond, and stop epidemics.
