ATLANTA, Dec. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- National Association of Chronic Disease Directors CEO John Robitscher released the following statement today:
"The National Association of Chronic Disease Directors supports CDC Director Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald's statement that science remains at the foundation of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's work to improve health across the nation.
