RALEIGH — Former N.C. Dept. of Health and Human Services Secretary Mandy Cohen has been tapped by President Joe Biden to lead the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), numerous media reports indicate.
Cohen, who became a fixture in near-daily virtual press briefings during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, had been working in the private sector since departing the agency in late 2021.
Outgoing CDC Director Rochelle Walensky announced she was leaving the agency on May 5. Her final day leading the agency is expected be June 30.
