Senior CDC official who met Trump's wrath for raising alarm about coronavirus to resign

Source: Washington Post

Nancy Messonnier has been director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases since 2016

By Isaac Stanley-Becker and Lena H. Sun

Nancy Messonnier, a senior health expert at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who was the first U.S. official to warn Americans last year that a looming pandemic would change their lives forever, is resigning from the agency, she told colleagues in an email Friday morning.

Her last day will be May 14.

“My family and I have determined that now is the best time for me to transition to a new phase of my career,” she wrote in the email, which was reviewed by The Washington Post. “CDC has provided me many meaningful, rewarding, and challenging opportunities to grow intellectually and mature as a public health leader.”

She added, “I am especially grateful for the time, talent, and energy that so many of you gave over the past 16 months. Together and in collaboration with our partners across public health and the federal, state, tribal, local and territorial government, we achieved incredible things, including deploying multiple vaccines in under one year and building the information infrastructure to provide real-time vaccination coverage and vaccine safety data.”
