Former HHS Secretary Price joins Georgia governor's transition team

Tom Price, MD, former secretary of HHS, has joined the transition team of Georgia's Gov.-elect Brian Kemp, according to The Hill.

Dr. Price resigned as HHS secretary in 2017 after a controversy over his use of private jets for official travel. He previously represented Georgia in the House from 2005 to 2017. He will advise Mr. Kemp on healthcare policy.

"Obviously he's got a lot of great experience with healthcare," said Mr. Kemp. "No one is more experienced with legislative matters than [Dr.] Price, and certainly his time in D.C. as well, so he's a valuable member of our team, but we're going to continue to work with a lot of different people on healthcare."
