Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky will leave her post next month, citing in a Friday resignation letter the end of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"I have never been prouder of anything I have done in my professional career," Walensky, 54, wrote to President Biden, informing him that her last day will be June 30.
She added that she had "mixed feelings" about the move but noted that the end of pandemic-era emergency declarations was an appropriate moment to step down.
The president has yet to announce an interim director to replace the ex-Harvard Medical School infectious diseases specialist, who had no experience running a government health agency when she took office.
Walensky caught flak as leader of the CDC for having bungled the Biden administration's COVID response on issues like school reopening, vaccination and mask mandates.

Pfizer. That is where her next job will be.
I wonder who she is clearing the runway for.
