This event is generously supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The 2017 emphasis is on Food Borne Illness, with information on statistical analysis for Division C only. Gold medal winners at the 2017 National Tournament in Division C will receive an expenses-paid trip to the Centers for Disease Control HQ in Atlanta!
