“The mission and values of our Center include helping people lead healthier lives, preventing communicable and chronic disease and advancing health equity,” said Center Director Nancy M. Bennett, MD, MS. “These are at the core of the Healthy People 2030 initiative. We are honored to be included as a Healthy People 2030 Champion, and will strive to meet the next decade’s health objectives.”
