The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) came under fire during the pandemic and suffered a sharp decline in public trust. The government has received recommendations to revive the agency from a group led by Steve Morrison, senior vice president at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).

  • The CDC has entered a “moment of peril”, Morrison said, meaning that trust and confidence in the CDC from Americans has declined.
  • CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky announced in August 2022 that there would be major changes in the CDC, and many of these changes are waiting to be rolled out, Morrison explained.
  • The CDC is a weak player in its presence and communication in the interagency process in Washington, D.C., and needs a stronger daily presence in Washington, according to Morrison.
