Position Description: *Applications will be reviewed on a rolling- basis.

CDC Office and Location: A research opportunity is available in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) located in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is one of the major operation components of the Department of Health and Human Services. CDC works to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same.

Research Project: The goal of Overdose Data to Action in States (OD2A-S) is to enhance the ability of State Health Departments (SHDs) to track and prevent nonfatal and fatal overdoses while also identifying emerging drug threats. The opportunity emphasizes surveillance strategies and the promotion of evidence-based and evidence- informed interventions that have an immediate impact on reducing overdose morbidity and mortality, with a focus on opioids, stimulants, and polysubstance use (if addressed in combination with opioids and stimulants). OD2A-S is underpinned by a data to action framework that reinforces the use of surveillance and other data to inform and drive prevention efforts and policies, with an emphasis on addressing health equity and health disparities. This opportunity builds off research and gains from previous overdose surveillance and prevention investments supporting SHDs.

Learning Objectives:

Mentor(s): The mentor for this opportunity is Sharon Clemmons (snc1@cdc.gov). If you have questions about the nature of the research please contact the mentor(s).

Participant Stipend: Stipend rates may vary based on numerous factors, including opportunity, location, education, and experience. If you are interviewed, you can inquire about the exact stipend rate at that time and if selected, your appointment offer will include the monthly stipend rate.

Non- U.S. citizen applicants should refer to the Guidelines for Non-U.S. Citizens Details page of the program website for information about the valid immigration statuses that are acceptable for program participation.
