Unmasking Challenges CDC Faces in Rebuilding Public Trust Amid Respiratory Illness Season

Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations hearing: “Unmasking Challenges CDC Faces in Rebuilding Public Trust Amid Respiratory Illness Season.”

Rebroadcasting December 1, 2023, 11:00am CST

With winter approaching comes the return of respiratory disease season with its anticipated increased spread of influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and COVID 19. This year, it comes as a critical test for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as the CDC seeks to build back public trust following well-documented mistakes during the COVID-19 pandemic and while the agency is still engaged in its “Moving Forward” reform effort. The Committee seeks to explore and better understand CDC’s planned response and outlook for the 2023 respiratory disease season, and how this and other recent experiences will inform any plans or changes moving forward.

Featured Witness:

The Honorable Mandy Cohen, M.D., Director, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
