President Trump has named Eric Hargan to serve as Acting HHS Secretary, replacing Don Wright (who was just named to the post on September 29, 2017).  The HHS Secretary vacancy was created when Tom Price, MD resigned the post September 29.  Hargan, an attorney who served at HHS during the George W. Bush Administration, was confirmed as Deputy HHS Secretary by the Senate last week.  Wright remains Acting Assistant Secretary for Health, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health, and Director of the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion.
