Date:5/15/2009

WASHINGTON, May 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement from Georges C. Benjamin, MD, FACP, FACEP (E), Executive Director of the American Public Health Association:

"The American Public Health Association (APHA) welcomes today's selection of Association member Dr. Thomas Frieden as the new director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

"During his tenure as New York City's health commissioner, Frieden has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to protecting the public's health through his tireless work on issues ranging from implementing a ban on smoking in restaurants and bars to increasing HIV testing rates. He has not backed away from the tough public health challenges and in doing so has helped the people he served lead healthier, longer lives.

"Frieden's experience and dedication to public health make him an excellent choice to lead the CDC. As a strong public health system is the foundation for a healthy America, APHA looks forward to working with Dr. Frieden in the months ahead as we think broadly about how to improve health in our nation."
