It's Sebelius

Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius has put all speculation to rest and agreed to be President Obama's nominee as Secretary of Health and Human Services. The deal was announced in the Sunday news outlets, and the formal announcement will be made Monday afternoon, prior to this week's White House summit on helath reform

Sebelius has received a lot of ink about her efforts as state insurance commissioner to hold down premium rates, and for her cost-containment efforts as governor. But she also launched the HealthyKansas initiative in November 2004 to promote prevention and wellness. The initiative is a comprehensive effort to control health care costs, improve the quality health care and raise awareness of the dangers of obesity in children and adults.
