Hamburg Confirmed As New FDA Chief

The AP reports that the Senate yesterday confirmed bioterrorism expert Dr. Margaret Hamburg as the new commissioner of the FDA, noting that she is “only the second woman to hold the post in 100 years of agency history.” The AP suggests that her “first priority will be to help direct development of a vaccine for the new swine flu. She says she also wants to revamp food safety.” The piece continues to explore the recent challenges faced by the agency, including recalls of foods and drugs, adding, “Hamburg, 53, told senators at her confirmation hearing that she wants to restore public confidence in the agency by putting science first and running an open and accountable operation.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
