MedStar Health Research Institute (MHRI) is supported by many people outside of the system. Part of that support team is the MHRI Board of Directors. The board helps to advise, advocate and serve as ambassadors for MHRI. I was pleased to see an email from two of our board members recently, Wayne Pines and Tevi Troy, with a photo of them as part of the national healthcare scene.
Thank you for your strong commitment to not only research at MedStar but to supporting public health across the country. Thank you for being an important part of MHRI’s Board!
Among the dozen non-family members invited to attend the White House swearing in of the new Secretary of Health and Human Services, Alex Azar, were two members of the MHRI Board of Directors. From left are Wayne Pines, who formerly was Associate Commissioner of the FDA; newly-sworn in HHS Secretary Alex Azar; and Tevi Troy, formerly Deputy HHS Secretary. Azar was sworn in by President Trump in the Roosevelt Room at the White House. Both Tevi and Wayne worked with Azar during the nomination process.
