Kathleen Sebelius Sworn In as Secretary of Dept. of Health and Human Services

By SOP newswire3


"It is an honor to lead the Department of Health and Human Services and I am grateful for the opportunity to serve at such a pivotal moment in our history.  I come to the Department as our nation confronts a serious public health challenge, the 2009 flu outbreak. My heart goes out to the families across the country and around the world who are feeling the impact of this health crisis.

In the coming days, I will work closely with President Obama and officials from across the government as we address this threat.  I also want to recognize the dedicated staff at HHS for the work they are doing to protect public health and inform the American people about this crisis."


-- HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius
