DALLAS, Dec. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Preventive Medicine, the leader in disease prevention services, commends President-elect Barack Obama on his choice of former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD) to head the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
"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 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.
