CSTE is the home for practicing epidemiologists at the state, local, tribal, and territorial levels as well as those working in federal, academic, non-profit, or corporate settings. As a CSTE member, your support has an important impact on public health practice, surveillance, and applied epidemiology. CSTE members are essential to the work we do during the year, and your participation is greatly appreciated.
Active members are engaged in the practice of epidemiology for a governmental public health authority at the state, local, tribal, or territorial level. Associate members are former active members or those practicing epidemiology in federal, military, or international settings as well as at academic institutions or corporate settings. Student members are currently enrolled full-time in an undergraduate or graduate program pursuing a degree in public health or a related field. Retired Past Presidents are recognized as CSTE Emeritus Members.
Associate, Student, and Emeritus members enjoy all the rights and privileges of active members except the right to vote at the Annual Meeting or any regular or special meeting of the Council and the right to serve on the Executive Board, as Subcommittee chair, or hold elected office.
