Georgia Public Health Commissioner Fitzgerald Named CDC Director

While President Trump is spending time overseas at the G-20 summit, new reports indicate he will appoint Brenda Fitzgerald as director of the Center for Disease Control.

Dr. Fitzgerald has been the commissioner of the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) and state health officer for the past six years.

Spencer's committee hearing was originally set for June, but it was pushed back due to the Senate's work on repealing and replacing Obamacare.

Fitzgerald now serves as president-elect of ASTHO, is a board-certified Obstetrician-Gynecologist, and has practiced medicine for more than three decades.

Fitzgerald will take over for Thomas Frieden, who served as director from 2009 until January. "Her collaborative approach to addressing both infectious disease and chronic health issues will serve the CDC well". Specifically, Dr. Fitzgerald's experience with disease prevention coupled with her background in obstetrics and gynecology has propelled her response to Zika infections in Georgia.

Fitzgerald, 70, ran for Congress twice in the 1990s as a Republican, but has worked steadily in public health for more than a decade.

The proposed legislation remains in committee and there has been no decision as to whether it will be sent to parliament. She did not know she was pregnant at the time.

"I wish Dr. Fitzgerald well".

The Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) works to strengthen laboratory systems serving the public's health in the United States and globally.

A key question, he said, will be whether Fitzgerald will succeed in getting the Trump administration to support the CDC's work by funding the agency in a stable and sufficient manner. "We look forward to continuing to work with Dr. Schuchat in her role as principal deputy director of CDC".

"Dr. Fitzgerald truly understands the challenges, needs and strengths of state and local departments of health and, in turn, public health laboratories", said Scott J. Becker, APHL executive director. "Her perspectives gained from clinical practice as well as serving as chief of a state public health agency will be crucial to her success as director of our nation's premiere public health agency".

Fitzgerald earned her M.D.at Atlanta's Emory University and served briefly in the Air Force.

The 2010 Affordable Care Act established these funds to ameliorate healthcare costs by preventing diseases before they happen.
