US HHS Sect. Leavitt Starts a Blog

US HHS Sect. Leavitt Starts a Blog

August 22, 2007

Well, here's a surprise. US Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt has started a blog. Click here. He writes from the road -- Montana and South Africa, for two. And he takes comments -- moderated during working hours by DHHS staff. His 8/16/07 posting touches on the SCHIP controversy, but only indirectly. This is unprecented, no? Give the guy credit for putting himself out there like no federal bureaucrat has done before. And let's give him all the comments we can in support of full SCHIP reauthorization! And sorry Nancy Turnbull -- one more health blog!
