With 30 years under his belt, David Brown retired from the Public Health Service. David Schwartz, NIEHS director, Sam Wilson, deputy director, Anne Sassaman, DERT director, Chip Hughes, Worker Education and Training Program director, and Allen Dearry, DRCPT director, spoke about Brown's contributions to NIEHS.

Former NIEHS Director Ken Olden, who was unable to attend, sent comments that Schwartz read at the retirement party. "David has the rare combination of compassion, temperament, intellect, and people skills that is so needed in an agency dedicated to health and human services. I will always be indebted to David for his invaluable advice and support as part of the leadership team during much of my tenure as director." Olden said in his written statement.

Brown has accepted a position as director of Scientific Research Program Development at the Center for Health Research at Constella Health Sciences in Durham.
