You are all this country’s A-Team when it comes to medical research, medical innovation and public health, along with our government’s other outstanding institutions including FDA, CDC and the other HHS agencies.
I am a bit surprised by this post – I had assumed the Secretary of Health and Human Services would have visited this facility many times already – for those who do not know, NIH is just a few miles north of DC.
I believe Secretary Becerra’s primary task should be to put in place a pandemic response which mostly operates outside any errors which those in power may make – a effective default plan, which I believe would include rapid testing of any proposed vaccines.
Appointed the 16th Director of NIH by President Barack Obama and confirmed by the Senate. He was sworn in on August 17, 2009. On June 6, 2017. President Donald Trump announced his selection of Dr. Collins to continue to serve as the NIH Director.
