Federal Manager's Daily Report

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has announced

that it will integrate its operational units into four


coordinating centers to leverage resources and increase

flexibility in the face of public health threats, emerging

issues and chronic health conditions.

The changes stem from CDC’s Futures Initiative, an ongoing

strategic development process started last year to integrate

hundreds of employees, other agencies, organizations, and

the public, said CDC.

It said the initiative is intended to align its priorities

and investments to be prepared to protect people from

environmental, terrorist and infectious threats, as well as

to promote health and prevent disease, injury and disability.

“Today’s world characterized by tremendous globalization,

connectivity, and speed poses entirely new challenges. The

steps we are taking through this initiative will better

position us to meet these challenges head on,” said CDC

Director Dr. Julie Gerberding.
