Watsonian Society Logo

The Watsonian Society was formed on October 1, 1985, as an organization to foster and continue professional and social relationships among public health advisors.

The purpose of the society is to unite public health advisors of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), and its predecessor organizations, for the following objectives:

  • Contribute to the overall public health management excellence of CDC and ATSDR
  • Recognize, preserve, and advance among CDC and ATSDR public health advisors the professional, personal, and social attributes that have distinguished the career of William C. Watson, Jr.
  • Encourage and maintain professional esprit de corps and general camaraderie among CDC and ATSDR public health advisors
