HIGHLIGHTS T CDC Foundation organized 13 Meta-Leadership Summits The for Preparedness in FY10, bringing the total number of Summits presented nationwide to 30. The Meta-Leadership Summits are a unique national initiative, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, to foster greater cross-sector collaboration among business, government and nonprofit leaders during a public health or safety crisis. Working with CDC, Harvard University and many local hosts and sponsors, the Foundation has engaged more than 4,000 leaders in the trainings. TThe CDC Foundation helped CDC and the World Health Organization (WHO) reach several major milestones in the Global Adult Tobacco Survey – a component of the Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use. Working with country leaders, the partners completed surveys to measure adult tobacco use and the effectiveness of tobacco control measures in 14 countries, representing 3.6 billion people – over half the world’s population. Survey data will help officials improve interventions aimed at reducing smoking in these countries. The initiative is funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies. TThanks to grants from Abbott Laboratories, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Genentech, Tibotec Therapeutics and Vertex Pharmaceuticals, the CDC Foundation is supporting CDC’s $12 million Chronic Viral Hepatitis B and C Cohort Study. The research will help CDC answer important questions about screening, treatment and outcomes of viral hepatitis. The Foundation also played a key role in launching the Viral Hepatitis Action Coalition, a group of industry and community partners committed to helping CDC make meaningful advances in the prevention, screening and treatment of viral hepatitis. TThe CDC Foundation worked with Pfizer Inc to help CDC’s Division of Blood Disorders continue work on the Study of Blood Inhibitors in Hemophilia Patients. Launched in 2005, the project is a multi-year, multi-state collaborative study to identify risk factors for developing an inhibitor, an antibody that prevents hemophilia drugs from working. Pfizer’s most recent gift of $800,000 is helping CDC expand the study to collect more data. Through partnerships with Wyeth Pharmaceuticals (now Pfizer) and Baxter BioScience, the CDC Foundation has received $6.8 million to support the study. W With a $1.44 million gift from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Ministry of Health, the CDC Foundation helped CDC launch a Field Epidemiology Training Program in Saudi Arabia. The goals of the program are to evaluate Saudi Arabia’s infectious disease surveillance system, help train local and regional disease detectives and improve the country’s capacity to monitor for and respond to infectious disease outbreaks.

MULTIPLYING THE IMPACT OF A PRIZE “I had no idea that I was being considered for the Fries Prize. It was one of the best-kept secrets and an incredible honor. I’m indebted not only to those who nominated me, but also to those who selected me. In public health, nothing is achieved alone. Everything is achieved by working together for a common goal. The CDC Foundation is the perfect example, offering an unequaled opportunity to improve public health far beyond the capacity of government. That’s certainly the case with the Louise Martin Endowed Memorial Scholarship Fund. When I learned that there was a $60,000 award associated with the Fries Prize, it took me about two nano-seconds to figure out what to do with it. I pledged the prize money as a challenge gift* to the scholarship fund to match donations, and it had a strong impact. The challenge seemed a perfect way to draw attention to and dramatically grow the fund. I credit the Fries Foundation for supporting such a prize. It’s a remarkable family, and a remarkable prize that goes a long way toward heightening the visibility and awareness of accomplishments in public health.”

Walter Dowdle, Ph.D., received the 2010 Fries Prize for Improving Health for extraordinary and continuing leadership and scientific achievement to help prevent millions of cases of disease and death from HIV/AIDS, influenza, polio and other diseases. Dowdle, a consultant to the Task Force for Global Health and the World Health Organization (WHO), was with CDC for 33 years and served in various capacities, including former deputy director of the agency. The Louise Martin, D.V.M., M.S., EIS ’85, Endowed Memorial Scholarship, named after a former CDC staff member killed in the 1998 bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi, provides scholarships for disadvantaged young women in Kenya to attend the Starehe Girls’ Centre, a national boarding school. *Gifts made in response to the challenge will be acknowledged in the FY 2011 Report to Contributors.

THE GENIUS OF GENEROSITY “Given Frances Shillinglaw’s keen intellect and sharp wit, it was never a surprise to me that science was her first love. As a young woman in the 1930s, she was advised to steer clear of the sciences by her professors and chose instead the path of Frances Shillinglaw the liberal arts. Frances was always fascinated by CDC and relished the opportunity to visit with former CDC Director Julie Gerberding, M.D., M.P.H., when she was a member of the CDC Foundation’s Atlanta Advocacy Council. She was an intentional and extremely generous philanthropist who understood the genius of generosity, always wanting her wealth to serve as a catalyst for good to empower people and institutions. Thanks to Frances’ generous bequest, we were able to produce the Assignment: CDC photo exhibition, which captured the unique stories of individuals whose lives have been impacted by the work of CDC and the CDC Foundation. It was a privilege to know Frances, both as a philanthropist and a friend. Her gift is a lasting investment that will advance the important work of CDC for years to come.” – Chloe Knight Tonney, CDC Foundation Frances M. Shillinglaw, an Atlanta philanthropist who passed away in September 2009 at 93, was a generous patron of the theater and the arts with a passion for science and mathematics. Her bequest to the CDC Foundation supported the Assignment: CDC, Photographs by David Snyder exhibition at CDC’s Global Health Odyssey Museum. The CDC Foundation offers a number of giving opportunities for individuals, including planned gifts through estates (bequests); memorial gifts to remember a friend or a loved one who has passed away; and honor gifts to pay tribute to a colleague, friend or family member.

CONFRONTING A SILENT EPIDEMIC “Viral hepatitis is a silent killer that causes long-term health problems, including liver damage, liver failure and liver cancer. Yet even though millions of Americans are affected, many people don’t have symptoms and don’t know they are infected. That’s why surveillance, screening and public awareness are so important. Effective viral hepatitis policy is really about turning the ‘alphabet soup’ of hepatitis A, B and C into actionable public health measures. The Viral Hepatitis Action Coalition has moved very rapidly to rally a deliberate, coordinated response to the health threats posed by hepatitis, with a focus on recommendations from the Institute of Medicine. We’ve been able to go faster and farther because of the CDC Foundation’s capable team and their excellent relationship with CDC in designing concrete projects with measurable outcomes. When you take the expertise of CDC and match it with the Foundation’s resources, you can do more than just make things go faster – you can invigorate a program. It’s rewarding to join with the CDC Foundation and others to help CDC conduct high priority projects that will make a difference in the urgent fight against viral hepatitis.” Amit Sachdev is senior vice president of corporate affairs and public policy for Vertex Pharmaceuticals, a global biotechnology company committed to the discovery and development of breakthrough small molecule drugs for serious diseases. Vertex is a founding member and partner of the Viral Hepatitis Action Coalition, launched by the CDC Foundation in partnership with CDC’s Division of Viral Hepatitis to support high-priority research, education and program evaluation projects initiated by CDC.
