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).
