Dr. Ken Castro began his career at CDC as an EIS [Epidemic Intelligence Service] officer assigned to the AIDS Program in July of 1983, just two years after the initial MMWR [Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report] report of Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia in homosexual men in June of 1981. Much of his early work in the AIDS Program related to various aspects of AIDS surveillance and HIV [human immunodeficiency virus] transmission. Subsequently he assumed a series of senior leadership positions at CDC in the areas of HIV and tuberculosis.
