Gayle leaving Gates philanthropy for CARE


Dr. Helene Gayle, who in 2001 left the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to direct AIDS programs for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, announced Friday she will be returning to Atlanta to take the helm of the international anti-poverty organization CARE.

'This was a very hard decision for me,' said Gayle. She acknowledged to colleagues that the choice had left her with a 'jumble of emotions,' but she said it was a rare opportunity to get even more involved in the issues she cares about most."
