dc.description.abstractThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, though a relatively small federal agency, plays a major role in protecting and improving the health of people in the United States and throughout the world. This study examines the CDC’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) performance and compares it to other federal agencies, ultimately suggesting simple things journalists can do to improve the likelihood of receiving their requested materials and discussing ways FOIA reform may help protect the freedom of the press and the public.
