Today, 8/6, marks my final day of public service after nearly 23 years at CDC. It has been an honor to work alongside world-class public health professionals at @CDCgov, our sister agencies, and our global partners.
Together, we have taken on incredible challenges and fought a good fight against global inequities around the world, as well as public health emergencies like polio, measles, HIV/AIDS, TB, malaria, Zika, Ebola, and COVID-19.
I am excited for my next adventure as Vice President for Global Health of @EmoryUniversity and Director of @emoryghi, and look forward to working alongside @CDCGlobal in this new capacity to protect health and save lives around the world.
