Amends the Public Health Service Act to change the duration of voluntary service that may be accepted from an individual provided by the National Foundation for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to aid or facilitate the work of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from a maximum of two years to until such time as the private funding for such individual ends.
