QUOTED. 4 November 2019. Alex Azar.
Alex Azar, secretary of the US Department of Health and Human Services, had only glowing things to say about former acting FDA commissioner Ned Sharpless after it was announced on 1 November that President Trump had selected a different nominee to head the agency on a permanent basis.

“Under Dr. Sharpless’s leadership for the past seven months, FDA has forged ahead in its essential work of protecting the public health.
