Michael B. Gregg, M.D., In Honor of 21 Years' Service as Editor, MMWR

In November 1988, Michael B. Gregg, M.D., concluded 21 years' service as Editor of MMWR. He continues at CDC as Acting Director of the Epidemiology Program Office. As Editor, Dr. Gregg strengthened MMWR's dedication to communicating accurate and timely public health information to health-care and public health professionals. He oversaw the expansion of MMWR to accommodate the ever-widening scope of public health problems that concern national, state, local, and other health agencies and organizations. Additional benchmarks include the citation of MMWR articles in Index Medicus and increased accessibility of MMWR articles through reproduction by the Massachusetts Medical Society (1) and collaborative reprinting in the Journal of the American Medical Association (2). CDC and the Public Health Service are deeply indebted to Dr. Gregg for his dedication to public health practice and standards of excellence in public health reporting.
