New Office to Enhance Collaboration and Partnership with CDC

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Abt Associates, a research, consulting, and technical assistance firm, this month opened an Atlanta office designed to facilitate collaboration, access, and enhanced services to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

"The CDC has been a substantial client of our firm for many years," said Kathleen Flanagan, Group Vice President for Social, Economic and Health Policy at Abt Associates. "We are confident that our new Atlanta office will enable us to strengthen communications with our CDC contacts, maximize project continuity, and enhance both the effectiveness and cost-efficiency of our project work."

Recent and ongoing studies on which Abt Associates has collaborated with the CDC include HIV prevention, chronic fatigue syndrome, flu vaccine safety, avian flu vaccine effectiveness, and the results of early exposure to mercury from thimerosal-containing vaccines.

The Atlanta office will be headed up initially by Scott W. Royal, Ph.D., Vice President and Deputy Director for Domestic Health at Abt Associates. Dr. Royal is an epidemiologist who has worked extensively with the CDC both during and prior to his three-year tenure at the firm. "I am enthusiastic about the opportunity to lead this important effort and believe an Atlanta office further demonstrates Abt's commitment to provide CDC the full range of our resources and competencies as we collaborate with them on current and future projects," said Dr. Royal.

The office is located at 2200 Century Parkway, Suite 980, Atlanta, GA 30345.

Abt Associates applies scientific research, technical assistance and consulting expertise to a wide range of social, economic and health policy issues; international development; clinical trials and registries; and complex business problems. Founded in 1965, the company provides services to U.S. federal, state and local governments; universities and foundations; media; and major corporations. Its staff of over 1,000 is located in Cambridge, Massachusetts; Atlanta, Georgia; Bethesda, Maryland; Durham, North Carolina; Lexington, Massachusetts (Abt Bio-Pharma Solutions, Inc.); New York, New York (Abt SRBI); and in Africa, Asia, Central Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East.
