In 1951, the E.I.S. was established at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Atlanta, Georgia, as a combined training, and service program in the practice of applied epidemiology. The program was founded by Dr. Alexander Langmuir when he realized that there was a need for epidemiologists with skills and practical field experience, to investigate and control naturally occurring disease outbreaks.
