As we celebrate CDC’s 70th anniversary this year, we are taking a look back at the events of the last seven decades that have helped CDC become the world’s leading public health agency.

Roper, MD, MPH; David Satcher, MD, PhD; Jeffrey P. Koplan, MD, MPH; and Julie Gerberding, MD, MPH will join current director Dr. Tom Frieden for this special Grand Rounds presentation.
