This photographic portrait showed William H. Foege, M.D., M.P.H., a former Centers for Disease Control director from 1977 - 1983. While in office, Dr. Foege worked to expand the agency's mission to include injury, violence, and chronic diseases, in addition to infectious disease monitoring and prevention.
