Biden Picks Trans Woman As Assistant Health Secretary

The incoming US President-elect Joe Biden’s administration is by any measure a historic one when it comes to diversity.

Now, in another momentous decision, Biden on Tuesday nominated Pennsylvania Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine as his pick for Assistant Health Secretary. Dr Levine – paediatrician and former Pennsylvania physician general – will become the first openly transgender federal official to be confirmed by the US Senate and the highest ranked transgender official in the country.

Dr. Levine’s work as a public health expert leading Pennsylvania’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic seems to have been what led to the cabinet pick.
