"Mr. Daschle is an excellent choice for Secretary of this vitally important agency, particularly at this critical time in our nation's history," stated Christopher Fey, U.S. Preventive Medicine Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We're confident that Mr. Daschle's active involvement in healthcare reform issues, combined with his Washington veteran status and added position of director of the new White House Office of Health Reform, provide him with the means to effectively mobilize the many disparate factions of our healthcare industry in better service of all Americans," continued Fey.

"We are especially gratified by Mr. Daschle's expressed commitment to prevention as a means of furthering the new administration's agenda for comprehensive healthcare reform. We look forward to an opportunity to work with Mr. Daschle and his team as they endeavor to ensure that all Americans have access to the quality, affordable healthcare services they need to stay healthy and adopt healthy lifestyles," Fey concluded.

Tommy Thompson, national policy advisor at U.S. Preventive Medicine, and former Wisconsin Governor and Secretary of Health and Human Services, commented: "Tom Daschle is an outstanding public servant who will do a good job at running HHS and I'm confident that he will develop a sound comprehensive healthcare plan for all Americans."
