harkin-sen-tom-07-01-11sCongratulations to Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa on his ascension to the chairmanship of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, taking the place of the late Edward Kennedy.

Senator Harkin is one of the Senate’s strongest and most vocal champions for making prevention and wellness a cornerstone of healthcare policymaking.  We’ve had the opportunity to work with him on various issues, and there is no question regarding his dedication to the idea that we can best improve the U.S. healthcare system by investing in the early detection and prevention of chronic disease.

We certainly look forward to working with the Senator from Iowa in his new role as Senate HELP Chairman.
