The complex includes a conference facility and information center that provides learner-centered auditoria and classrooms equipped with technology for multimedia communications; production studios with satellite broadcast, interactive video and Internet webcast capabilities; a secure communications and control center; and a joint Emory University/CDC program office. Additionally, a learning resource center and public health library are open to students and visiting scientists. The complex also includes a parking deck to accommodate 1,100 vehicles.
