Dear Colleague,

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is taking a 
fresh look at its future. This process requires that they take stock of 
who they are, who their customers are, and how well they meet the 
current and future needs of the public.  

To be sure they include as many people as possible, they are using 
an "outside-in" approach in which they will interact with our 
customers, partners, stakeholders, and employees.  They are 
interested in your thoughts and ideas about CDC's future, and 
invite you to share your comments. Please email 
futuresgroup at with your thoughts on the most pressing 
issues that we, as the public health community, will face in the next 
5-10 years, your experience with CDC, or any other views you have 
for them as they embark on their Futures Initiative.  

A letter from Julie Gerberding, MD, MPH, Director, CDC, is 
attached for additional information. Also visit the Futures Initiative 
website at  

[ed:  please contact the sender for a copy of the letter, as COMM-
ORG does not distributes formatted files.]
