Notice to Readers Title Change of Four Centers Within CDC

The Secretary of Health and Human Services has authorized CDC to include ``National'' in retitling four centers, as follows: the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, the National Center for Environmental Health and Injury Control, the National Center for Infectious Diseases, and the National Center for Prevention Services. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and the National Center for Health Statistics were brought into CDC under previous organizational changes; these two organizations were named previously by legislation. With these current changes, CDC programs are now uniformly titled to reinforce the similarity in scope among major organizational components.
