FDA Veterinarian Newsletter 2002 Volume XVI, No IV

The Center for Veterinary Medi-cine (CVM) has recently reorganized the Office of the Center Director. Ms. Cathy Beck, formerly with FDA's Office of the Commissioner, is the new Associate Director for Executive Programs.

With 28 years of service with FDA and HHS, Ms. Beck has served as the Director of the Executive Secretariat at FDA, and as the Deputy Director of the Executive Secretariat at HHS. Ms. Beck's knowledge of the Agency and how it operates, her numerous contacts at both the Agency and the Department, and her direct experience in organizing and directing Executive Secretariat offices make her ideally suited for this new position in CVM.

Ms. Beck will oversee the following functions and staffs at CVM: Ombudsman, Advisors and Consultants, including Veterinary Medicine Advisory Committee (VMAC), Project Management, and Communications.

In addition, Ms. Beck is currently establishing an Executive Secretariat to serve as the major Center-level focal point for all inquiries, requests, and correspondence directed to the Center Director related to Center-wide programs.
