Richard Besser“During the years I worked at CDC, I saw how invaluable the CDC Foundation was to our work, especially during public health crises. They have the ability to move with speed that governmental agencies often lack. Now that I am with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, I understand what an important partner they are for accomplishing our mission. Together, we can achieve so much more.”
