.@RWalensky is the real-deal. She's not a politician. She comes to serve her country. She has the expertise and experience we need right now and she is selfless, caring, honest and unafaid of speaking hard truths. nytimes.com/2021/01/11/opi…
I'm an epidemiologist (#epitwitter) at the Div. of Epi & Community Health at UMN. I like rabbits. I like iced tea. I also like plots that involve time travel.
"I agreed to serve as C.D.C. director because I believe in the agency’s mission and commitment to knowledge, statistics and guidance. I will do so by leading with facts, science and integrity — and being accountable for them..." -@RWalensky nytimes.com/2021/01/11/opi…
I've worked on all of science, from B cells to T cells.
'I acknowledge that our team of scientists will have to work very hard to restore public trust in the C.D.C., at home and abroad, because it has been undermined over the last year.'

Few things have given me hope or made me as proud of @RWalensky @IDSAInfo #WeAreID as her impassioned summary of #COVID19 devastation & pledge to lead @CDCgov via @NYTOpinion nytimes.com/2021/01/11/opi…

.@RWalensky is straight-forward and honest, driven by science, and does not back down from a challenge.
Our greatest public health institution, and the health of all Americans, will benefit from her position as the @CDCgov Chief.

Must read from @RWalensky.
"On my first day...begin a comprehensive review to ensure that all existing guidance related to Covid-19 is evidence-based and free of politics."

”I will tell the president, Congress and the public what we know when we know it, and I will do so even when the news is bleak, or when the information may not be what those in the administration want to hear.” @RWalensky nytimes.com/2021/01/11/opi…
Epidemiology and global health security policy.
Pledge from @RWalensky on honesty from @CDCgov. I do hope this includes allowing CDC scientists to engage more regularly--and directly--with the media. CDC's interests have not been served by its long history of tightly controlled media access. nytimes.com/2021/01/11/opi…
