Washington Times: Worse than AIDS: Opioid epidemic is public health crisis CDC director fears most
“…Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, … has settled in at the CDC’s Atlanta headquarters after spending much of his career in Washington and suburban Maryland. He is stepping into the spotlight to act on global outbreaks and domestic crises. … Worldwide, he said, the CDC has a role to play in stamping out polio — which continues to circulate in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Nigeria — and in combating global outbreaks of diseases such as Zika, Ebola, and pandemic flu…” (Howell, 7/8).
