Ted Pestorius, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

The Ebola outbreak has forced the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention into overdrive. About 100 staff members are in West Africa. Hundreds of other employees are working at the agency's emergency operations center in Atlanta. Still more are working stateside to protect Americans from Ebola or just picking up extra work so their colleagues can focus on the disease. Ted Pestorius is a management officer for the CDC's National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, where his focus is on the center's employees. Emily Kopp caught up with him at NIH this week, at a conference where he was speaking about ways supervisors can support their employees. She asked Pestorius how is the CDC supporting these employees, and what concerns he hears the most about their well-being?
