TB Challenge: Partnering to Eliminate TB
in African Americans

Fall 2003

In Memory of William “Bill”Burley, Public Health Advisor

This newsletter is dedicated to William "Bill" Burley. Bill served from 1984 to 1996 at CDC in the Division of Tuberculosis Elimination as a program consultant. During Bill's career in public health, he helped all of us to better understand the underserved and the often forgotten; he constantly pushed all of us toward a better understanding of health disparities and inequalities. Bill succumbed to leukemia in 1996, but his memory remains with us, and his life's work is a legacy to us all.
