In an effort to educate the public and key stakeholders about its charge of saving lives, protecting people and saving money through prevention, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently changed its tagline to reflect the value of public health and prevention which extends the length and quality of life while building a more secrue and productive nation.
This new tagline will appear on all CDC-released materials: "CDC 24/7: Saving Lives. Protecting People. Saving Money through Prevention."
In a news release announcing the new descriptive language, the CDC said: "CDC works 24/7 saving lives, protecting people from health threats and saving money through prevention resulting in a more secure nation. CDC puts science and prevention into action to make the healthy choice the easy choice. CDC helps people live longer and healthier to lead productive lives."
