WASHINGTON, March 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following statement was released today by Dr. Jane L. Delgado, President and CEO of the National Alliance for Hispanic Health, the nation's leading Hispanic health advocacy group.
"We congratulate Governor Sebelius on her nomination as our nation's next Secretary of Health and Human Services and Nancy-Ann DeParle on her appointment as Director of the White House Office of Health Reform.
"The nation will be well served at this critical time in our history by Governor Sebelius' and Nancy-Ann DeParle's commitment to achieving health care for all. President Obama and Congress took an important step forward last month by delivering health coverage to 4.1 million uninsured children. At a time when so many are having economic difficulties, including the one in three Hispanics that are uninsured, it is more important than ever that we provide relief to families worried about the basics of their household budget.
"For our national well-being now and in the future, we look forward to working together with the President's health team to deliver on the promise of quality health care for all in this country."
NOTE: Dr. Delgado is one of the health leaders invited by President Obama to the White House Health Summit to be held Thursday, March 5, 2009.
