CDC Director Reveals Restructuring Plans

August 18, 2022

CDC Director Rochelle P. Walensky, MD, MPH, has announced that the agency will undergo restructuring changes that are, in part, due to the agency’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Under the changes, the director will be reported to directly the Division of Laboratory Sciences and the Office of Science to ensure accountability. In addition, the agency will form a new executive council and equity office.

According to Walensky, “For 75 years, CDC and public health have been preparing for COVID-19, and in our big moment, our performance did not reliably meet expectations. As a long-time admirer of this agency and a champion for public health, I want us all to do better, and it starts with CDC leading the way.”
