“I congratulate Dr. Fleming on his appointment to the Department of Health and Human Services,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “President Trump and Secretary Price have made a wise decision in adding John to the administration.  John is a skilled physician who can help strike a balance between advancing health care through technology and not crippling our medical professionals with regulatory costs and paperwork.  He's also a good guy and was a terrific Congressman.”
