Two developments from the land of presidential transition: Julie Gerberding resigned as chief of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) after six-plus years in the post, and Frank Torti, principal deputy commissioner at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), becomes the agency's acting commish next week to pave the way for new Obama administration appointees.
Gerberding, 53, announced her resignation late Friday in an email to CDC staffers, according to the Associated Press. An internist, Gerberding became the first woman to head the CDC when she took the helm in July 2002. CDC chief operating officer William Gimson will take the reins as acting director after President-elect Barack Obama is sworn in next Tuesday.
The CDC investigates outbreaks of disease, the cause and prevalence of medical problems, and promotes healthy lifestyles.
