Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Tour
Join Hadassah Greater Atlanta’s Ketura Group for a special day at the CDC.
Carpool: Publix – Abernathy Square Shopping Center, 6615 Roswell Road Sandy Springs, GA 30328 or from your neighborhood.
The museum houses many unique and interesting exhibits including The World Unseen: Intersections of Art and Science. This exhibition gathers the work of ten international artists who draw upon microbiology, biotechnology, anatomy, and texts in their investigations of microbes and cells, DNA, history of disease and science, the body, and beauty. They all share a deep interest in science, and some are scientists themselves or collaborate closely with researchers. Some mine the images of the unseen world to comment about the debates that swarm around the intersection of disease and ethics—past, present, and future. Others are drawn to the abstract beauty of what is sub-visible—real and imagined. Donation: $8.00 per attendee. There is free visitor parking at the CDC, but it is limited. It is best to form carpools in your neighborhood and meet up in the lobby of the CDC. Note: Cars that enter the CDC may be searched; check your trunk and other storage areas.
Attendees: Hadassah Members and their guests
Tour: Docent-guided tour through the CDC will be approximately 2 1/2 hours and begin at 10 am promptly. All attendees will meet in the CDC lobby to begin the tour.
Security: You must have a government-issued picture ID to enter the CDC (valid driver’s license or passport or state-issued photo ID card). You will be asked to show your ID.
Optional Lunch: Return to Abernathy Square Shopping Center and dine at Ippolitos (separate checks) in the shopping center. (You must RSVP for the lunch to ensure a seat.)
