The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is frequently in breaking news headlines for their efforts to prevent potential fatalities related to highly transmittable or new disease outbreaks. Dominating the media is how the CDC educates the public in an emergency, and their top-of-the-line facilities and field diagnostics teams are essential to the safety of the international community. One of the most followed government agencies on social media, the CDC is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. TV shows featuring the CDC include ReGenesis on Canada’s CBC TV. The CDC is often in the news because they publish public health press releases related to smoking in movies. The CDC also publishes commentary about movies based on CDC-related topics such as Outbreak and Contagion.
