Biden Selects Transgender Doctor As Assistant Health Secretary.
BIDEN Selects Transgender Doctor As Assistant Health Secretary, who has been Pennsylvania’s Health Secretary since 2017
President-elect Joe Biden has chosen Rachel Levine, the current Pennsylvania Health Secretary since 2017, a transgender doctor, as his nomination for Assistant Health Secretary if she is confirmed by the US Senate.
The move comes just hours before Biden is sworn into office tomorrow, January 20, and means, if sworn in, Levine will become the first-ever openly transgender federal official in US history, joining Xavier Becerra, Biden’s nomination for Health and Human Services secretary, who, if sworn in, will become the first Latino head of the Department of Health and Human Services.
