Building the CDC that America Needs

Join the Miller Center, with Batten Prof. Margaret Foster Riley as a moderator, for expert assessment of the state of America’s public health systems and the future of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

The Miller Center’s new Health Care Policy Project joins Stephen Morrison of the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS)—who is also the Miller Center’s James R. Schlesinger Distinguished Professor—for a timely and important conversation about what lies ahead for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In January 2023, the CSIS’s Commission on Strengthening America’s Health Security released a compelling report, Building the CDC the Country Needs, which examines why the CDC is essential to protecting the health of Americans and highlights the peril the agency currently faces. Three years into the pandemic, what is the way forward to improve the CDC’s performance and restore the trust and confidence of the American people?
