A Perspective on the FDA’s COVID-19 Response 

I have the honor to run the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products (CTP). While CTP’s work to protect the public health is essential and continues during the pandemic, we are the least involved of the FDA centers when it comes to working directly on the coronavirus (COVID-19) response. That said, I’ve been proud to join my FDA colleagues in our “all-hands-on-deck” approach to tackling this pandemic, lending as much support as possible as my FDA colleagues across the entire organization work tirelessly for the American people.

The COVID-19 pandemic represents a new and significant challenge for all of us – both personally and professionally. Despite these challenges and the impact on all of us, I am hopeful and inspired by what I see happening behind the scenes at the agency.
