WASHINGTON, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The Disease Management Association of America (DMAA) announced today the retirement of its Executive Director, Warren Todd, from the Association.

"Having had the opportunity to participate in the development of disease management, which has such importance to our country, has truly been an honor. Building a new Association has been both very challenging and gratifying. Having helped DMAA evolve into an organization that now has an established reputation, I am pleased to turn the work over to new leadership and to focus my energies on expanding disease management globally," states Mr. Todd.

"Warren has approached his long standing involvement in DMAA with passion and energy. We are grateful to him for helping to build DMAA into the strong association that it is today and for championing the cause for so many years.
