Statement attributable to:
Patrice A. Harris, M.D.
Chair, AMA Board of Trustees

“The American Medical Association strongly supports the nomination of Dr. Tom Price to become the next Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). His service as a physician, state legislator and member of the U.S. Congress provides a depth of experience to lead HHS. Dr. Price has been a leader in the development of health policies to advance patient choice and market-based solutions as well as reduce excessive regulatory burdens that diminish time devoted to patient care and increase costs.

“We urge the Senate to promptly consider and confirm Dr. Price for this important role.”
