Washington, D.C. (Vocus) May 22, 2009 -- Dr. Julie Gerberding, former Director of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Hiromitsu Ogawa, Partner and founder of Quest Venture Partners and of CAI International Inc., have been elected to the Accordia Global Health Foundation's Board of Directors.
