Tom Frieden Future Leaders Fund

To honor Dr. Tom Frieden’s legacy as director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and in recognition of his profound impact on the health of America and the world, the CDC Foundation has launched the Tom Frieden Future Leaders Fund. This fund supports three CDC-led programs about which he cares deeply—the Public Health Associate Program (PHAP), the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) and the recently-established Laboratory Leadership Service (LLS) fellowship program. These three programs provide vital early-career training and hands-on experience for individuals interested in public health and related professions.

Dr. Tom FriedenThe CDC Foundation provided an initial lead gift of $20,000 to encourage additional support from individuals, philanthropies and the private sector.

The need for public health fellowships, training and development programs is more critical than ever, as the United States experiences an unprecedented public health workforce crisis. Some estimates indicate 250,000 more health workers are needed to maintain current capacity. A robust public health workforce is vital to ensuring the health, safety and security of America and the world.

The fund will build on Dr. Frieden’s life-saving legacy by enhancing and amplifying the impact of CDC’s PHAP, EIS and LLS programs. The goal of the fund is to fill existing gaps, increase impact and facilitate innovative opportunities in areas including enhancing program curricula and recruitment efforts; enabling involvement in emerging outbreaks for EIS teams; engaging additional expert faculty; and increasing partnerships to connect graduates with public health job needs.

Please join with the CDC Foundation to honor Dr. Frieden and ensure that future leaders have the training and support that is crucial to securing a safer, healthier world for all of us.

Jonathan M. Mann Memorial Lecture Fund

This named fund was established in 2009 through a generous donation from Richard E. Hoffman, MD, MPH, EIS ’78. This fund is used to honor the career of the late Dr. Jonathan M. Mann. To this end, funds are used in support of the annual Jonathan M. Mann Memorial Lecture. This lecture is administered by the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) during their annual conference.

 

Dr. Jonathan MannJonathan Max Mann, MD, MPH, EIS '75, was called the “architect of the global mobilization against AIDS” for his role as the founding director of the World Health Organization’s Global Program on AIDS. But Dr. Jonathan Mann was also an accomplished state epidemiologist, serving the state of NewMexico in that capacity for nearly a decade, from 1975–1984.

 

The world lost one of its greatest public health allies when Dr. Mann lost his life in the Swissair plane crash off Nova Scotia in 1998. His wife, Dr. Mary Lou Clements-Mann, also died in the crash. He is survived by his mother, Ida Mann, and children, Naomi, Lydia and Aaron Mann.

 

Dr. Mann was instrumental in coalescing governments and individuals to view AIDS as a human rights concern as much as a public health issue, defining AIDS as a social problem to be solved.That action reflected a larger view that public health should be seen as interwoven into the social fabric. “Public health,” he wrote, “too often studies health without intruding upon larger, societal, inescapably value-laden issues.”

 

Dr. Mann’s life was replete with education and accomplishments. He had two degrees from Harvard and an MD from the Washington University School of Medicine. He was a former state epidemiologist and deputy director of the New Mexico Health Department. He was a former officer of CDC’s Epidemic Intelligence Service, and he taught epidemiology and international health at the Harvard School of Public Health, where he also directed the Francois-Xavier Bagnoud Center for Health and Human Rights. Dr. Mann also organized and directed the international collaborative AIDS Research Project in Kinshasa, Zaire.

 

The Jonathan M. Mann Memorial Lectureship is made possible annually by the CDC Foundation with proceeds from a generous gift from Richard E. Hoffman, MD, MPH, of Denver, Colorado.
