The CDC Scientists Preserving Integrity, Diligence and Ethics in Research, an anonymous cluster of senior scientists, has filed an ethics complaint to the CDC Chief of Staff alleging the federal agency is too cozy with special interests and outside parties, which “ultimately undermine its credibility and reputation in public health.” The missive contends a cover-up of poor performance of a woman’s health program, misallocation of staff resources, and disturbing ties between beverage giant, Coca-Cola, and two high-ranking CDC officials — Dr. Barbara Bowman and Dr. Michael Pratt. The CDC did not address how the agency will respond to the complaint. More from The Hill.
