The CDC Director

Julie Louise Gerberding, M.D., M.P.H.

From the Director

Dr. Julie Louise Gerberding, MD, MPH

Welcome to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Each day at CDC, we try to imagine a safer, healthier world. A world where infants are born healthy and cared for -- so, as children, they can arrive at school safe, well-nourished, and ready to learn. A world in which teenagers have the information, motivation, and hope they need to make healthy choices about their lifestyles and behaviors. A world in which adults enjoy active and productive lives in safe communities where they can remain independent and engaged with family and friends throughout their senior years.
