Since 1995, the CDC Foundation has worked to partner the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with individuals, foundations, corporations and governments, raising more than $400 million and facilitating more than 700 programs to extend CDC’s life-saving public health work.
The California Endowment and CDC Foundation hosted a special November 7 event in honor of the exhibition Health is a Human Right at CDC’s David J. Sencer Museum.
