Transgender Woman Nominated for Key Post in Biden Administration

Dr. Rachel Levine
President-elect Joe Biden announced that he will nominate Dr. Rachel Levine, the current secretary of health for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, as assistant secretary for health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Dr. Levine is also president of the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials which demonstrates the respect that her fellow state secretaries of health hold. Dr. Levine, a board certified pediatrician, is a graduate of Harvard and of Tulane Medical School. She has served in her current state post since 2017.

We will have to see if Republicans pandering to the Christian right will object to Dr. Levine simply because she is a transgender woman. Nothing would surprise me.
