DUBLIN, Ohio, Dec. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cardinal Health today announced that Carrie Cox will serve on the company's board of directors, effective immediately.

"We are very excited to be able to draw on her perspectives and insights as we continue to execute on our strategic vision."

She is a member of the board of directors of Texas Instruments, a member of the Health Policy and Management Executive Council at the Harvard School of Public Health and a member of the Board of Overseers of the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.
