Bill Griggs started his career as a Public Health Advisor in the Venereal Disease Program of CDC. He became known as a person to turn to in order to get something done. When the Smallpox Eradication effort began he was assigned to recruit people to act as Operations Officers, a concept that was new to international health programs. Bill was Assistant Director of CDC for International Health at the time of his retirement.
