CDC Director Dr. Julie Gerberding has named two new members of her management team. Dr. Ed Thompson, Mississippi's state health officer, will be deputy director for public health programs and services, a new position that will serve as a liaison between the CDC and state and local health departments. Gerberding also named long-time AIDS expert Dr. Harold Jaffe as director of the CDC's National Center for HIV, STD and TB Prevention. Jaffe, who was acting director of the CDC for 13 months, joined the agency in 1974 and collaborated on its earliest AIDS research in 1981.
