Confirmation Hearings For HHS Secretary Nominee Rep. Price Conclude; TAG Releases Statement Opposing Nomination

Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks”: Hearings on Price for HHS Secretary conclude, with finance committee vote possible next week
Antigone Barton, senior editor and writer of “Science Speaks,” highlights several issues discussed during the confirmation hearing of HHS Secretary nominee Rep. Tom Price, including several global health-related topics. “The conclusion of the second several-hour hearing, during which support for the nominee appeared divided along party lines opens the way for a [Senate] Finance Committee vote on whether to recommend that the Senate approve Rep. Price’s nomination as early as next week,” Barton writes, noting the Treatment Action Group (TAG) released a statement opposing Price’s nomination (1/25).
