Chris Kochtitzky was probably best known for his work in urban planning and public health—it was his life. The Chris Kochtitzky Memorial Fund will celebrate and continue his tireless work and commitment to this field. Chris knew just how important the built environment was in terms of limiting or enabling people and communities to lead their collectively most healthy lives. Chris started at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a presidential management intern in 1992. Over the next 28 years, he worked in a variety of policy and programmatic positions at the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH), National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD), and National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP).

Giving to the Chris Kochtitzky Memorial Fund at the CDC Foundation will honor his important legacy and provide funding for programs that bridge the gap between urban planning and public health. Give now and your gift will be matched up to a combined total of $15,000 through a generous matching gift from Chris’s family and friends. We can do it with your support!
