As shared by Politico:

“HHS [Department of Health and Human Services] announced two moves Wednesday: Laura Kemper, currently the deputy assistant secretary for legislation (public health and science) will be serving as counselor to the secretary for public health and science. Michael Pratt, previously the American Enterprise Institute’s director of media relations, is joining the department as director of strategic communications and campaigns.

Some officials also are departing, our health care colleague Dan Diamond reports. Sean Hayes, previously the deputy assistant secretary for oversight and investigations, moved to law firm Wilmer Hale last week. Taylor Sexton, who had joined in June as an advisor to Assistant Secretary of Legislation Matthew Bassett, will leave soon, Sexton told Dan.”
