CPH Foundation proposes new logo for the CDC

Reblogged from The CPH Foundation

In honor of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s new 2013 Operating PlanThe CPH Foundation is proposing this new “In the RED” Logo for the CDC!

What a striking change from blue!

Sure – it stinks to be stuck in line at the airport because sequestration caused some flight delays (and thank you Congress for your rapid and bipartisan efforts to reverse those embarrassing news stories!) but wow – imagine the implications from cuts to nearly every disease control and prevention program at the CDC (or don’t, if you like your sleep)!!

Unfortunately you won’t hear much about CDC cuts. Unlike TV and Radio interviews of angry airline passengers, empty public health research laboratories and canceled lead poisoning prevention programs don’t make the cover of your local paper exciting.

But – you could still call Congress and ask them what they are thinking! Be sure to call twice – first asking for your House member and again to talk to your Senator. Need the number?

Capitol Switchboard: (202) 224-3121.
