The Obama transition team made the following announcement on Thursday:
President-elect Barack Obama nominated on Thursday former Senator Tom Daschle as Secretary of Health and Human Services, naming director of a new White House Office of Health Reform. Dr. Jeanne Lambrew, who authored a book about health care reform with Daschle, will serve as Deputy Director of the White House Office of Health Reform.
This new White House office will coordinate efforts within the Administration, the Congress and across the country to pass health care reform. In his two roles, Daschle will not only implement the President’s vision for health care at the Department of Health and Human Services, but also have the responsibility of leading health care reform. He will be the White House’s voice on this critical issue.
