On assignment for the CDC Foundation, photojournalist David Snyder has traveled to Kenya, Brazil, Peru, Haiti, India and several cities in the U.S. to report on CDC programs in action. The exhibition features more than 75 photographs and notes from the field.
Through his travels, Snyder has captured the unique stories of individuals whose lives have been impacted by the work of CDC and the CDC Foundation. From “Mama Sprinkles,” who distributes micronutrient packets to families in Kenya’s Nyanza Province, to CDC scientists who conducted disease surveillance after the earthquake in Haiti, Snyder’s images and field notes tell the story of how people, working with common dedication and cause, can improve the health of communities everywhere.
The CDC Foundation is an independent, nonprofit organization that helps CDC do more, faster, by forging effective partnerships between CDC and others to fight threats to health and safety. The Foundation manages more than 200 programs in the U.S. and around the world. The ASSIGNMENT: CDC exhibition is part of a CDC Foundation In Focus campaign developed to increase awareness of the impact of public health programs around the world. The campaign coincides with the CDC Foundation’s 15-year anniversary.
