Wanted: New State Health Commissioner


Texas needs an outstanding physician to head the state health department. We’ve had a caretaker commissioner in place since David Lakey, MD, left the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) in January. This week, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission posted the position. In addition to running DSHS, the commissioner is frequently the face of public health policy in Texas. I encourage physicians who want to make a real difference in the health of our state to apply.
