Trump Nominates Azar for HHS SecretaryVOA - Tuesday 14th November, 2017
If confirmed, he would fill the post that has been vacant since Tom Price resigned in September for chartering expensive planes at government expense, rather than taking cheaper commercial flights
Trump, in a tweet announcing the nomination Monday, said Azar 'will be a star for better healthcare and lower drug prices.'
Azar worked in the HHS under the administration of former President George W. Bush.
More recently, he was head of pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly. He left the company earlier this year.
