Date:12/11/2008

Statement from Georges C. Benjamin, MD, FACP, FACEP (E), Executive Director, American Public Health Association

WASHINGTON, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "At a time when national interest in reforming the health system has never been higher, the American Public Health Association (APHA) applauds President-elect Obama for prioritizing health reform and selecting former Sen. Tom Daschle to lead the Department of Health and Human Services, as well as the new White House Office on Health Reform.

Throughout his career Daschle has demonstrated a commitment to protecting the health of Americans and his selection further establishes the dedication of the new administration to addressing the critical health issues facing the nation. APHA commends the emphasis on prevention and community-based approaches as central to a new health system that Daschle has expressed as leader of Obama's transition health policy team.

APHA looks forward to working with Daschle in the months ahead as our nation seeks new ways to prevent and mitigate disease, ensure that all Americans have access to preventative care and to the timely, affordable health services they need to stay healthy, and that they are supported in their efforts to adopt healthy behaviors."
