Obama Picks Sebelius for HHS
2 March 2009 12:37 pm
President Barack Obama is expected to announce today that he has nominated Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius to head the Department of Health and Human Services. The response to her nomination, largely positive, thus far has focused on her efforts to expand access to health care in her home state.
Sebelius, if confirmed, would also be in charge of the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Food and Drug Administration, raising hopes that leaders for those agencies will be named soon. For FDA, at least, multiple people have surfaced as possible heads.
