NASH Supports Becerra Nomination to Lead HHS

NASH has expressed its public support for the nomination of Xavier Becerra to serve as the next Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

In a letter to the chair and ranking minority member of the Senate Finance Committee, which reviews such nominations, NASH wrote that

We worked with Mr. Becerra when he was a member of Congress and served on the House Ways and Means Committee and can attest to his understanding of the distinct challenges low-income and underserved communities face and his sincere interest in using public policy to help address those challenges. We would welcome an opportunity to work with a Secretary who understands these challenges and also understands the underlying health equity challenges that we must address as a nation.
