Letter of Support for Dr. Rachel Levine

February 18, 2021

Dear Senators Murray and Burr:

Dr. Levine’s background makes her deeply qualified and uniquely suited to help lead the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) at this critical time. A graduate of Harvard University and Tulane Medical School, Dr. Levine is an accomplished pediatrician who was appointed in 2015 by Governor Tom Wolf as Pennsylvania’s physician general, the state’s top doctor. Impressed with her background in behavioral and mental health, the state Senate voted unanimously to approve her. In 2017 she was named Acting Secretary of Health and confirmed as Pennsylvania’s health secretary. Her efforts to contain the coronavirus; fight and prevent diseases such as HIV, Hepatitis C, and diabetes; reduce health disparities, end the opioid epidemic; and support the LGBTQ community reflect her knowledge, and expertise to lead public health efforts and successfully work with key health offices and programs across HHS, local and state health departments, and multiple physician, researcher, and patient groups."
